Light snow is also possible during the late morning hours on Friday.
But National Weather Service forecasters say a brutishly cold air mass entrenched in northern Canada will blast south at the beginning of next week.
SATURDAY: Partly Cloudy and Very Cold High: 7. The wind chill numbers will stay below zero. Snow accumulations around 1 to 3 inches are in tonight's forecast.
Extreme cold will move back to the area Wednesday and Thursday, with an overnight low of 5 and risky wind chill values here, the weather service said. Frostbite and hypothermia can occur if precautions are not taken. Make sure to wear a hat and gloves.
As the cold air plunges in later Tuesday, rain could change to a little snow. One to four inches of snow was expected but would likely drift in some areas due to the strong winds.
The final weekend of January will be a cold one but nothing unusual for the middle of winter.
Thursday: Mostly cloudy with a chance of snow showers later in the day. Exposed skin in that of cold can be frost bitten in no more than 10 minutes.
