A low-pressure system approaches from the Great Lakes with a coastal low bringing a chance for snow to Valley Wednesday afternoon into Thursday. An inch or less is expected depending upon the low’s track and intensity. An Arctic cold front brings much colder air into the Valley for the weekend with highs in the single digits and lows around 10 below.
