Eyeing First Freeze of Season
A pattern change that has been discussed all over the meteorological world is still set to occur later into next week. It's that change that will allow the coldest air of the season thus far to push in from Canada. The change that will occur is a switch in the jet stream. The jet has been located to our north for the duration of autumn, but it will dip to our south late next week. As a result, colder air will be allowed to filter into the Midwest and Great Lakes. For Rockford, we are expecting temperatures to drop into the lower 30's Friday night and possibly the upper 20's Saturday night. Winter's first shot is eyeing the area!
