The morning will be sunny and the afternoon is expected to be partly cloudy with the possibility of some rain.

However, things are going to quickly turn as we inch toward the weekend.

Highs on Friday will struggle to hit 50 degrees with a forecasted high of 49. It will only get cooler on Saturday with a high of 42.

To make matters worse, there is a very real chance that a large portion of the viewing area could see measurable snowfall on Friday evening through Saturday morning.

There could possibly be a record low on Saturday with clear skies likely to drop temperatures into the 20s, when the record low for May 9 is 30 degrees.
