However, we won't make it above freezing until late in the weekend.{ } An{ }Alberta Clipper{ }will bring a brief chance for snow tonight.{ } Most of us will sleep through it. The best window of opportunity will be between 10p and 4a.m.{ } A 50% chance of a light dusting across the area.{ }The farther West you live, the more likely you will be to see any snow.{ } Any snow that falls will stick, as ground temperatures are now well below freezing.{ } Here's a look at one model solution of snow over the area around midnight tonight...{ }
