The two pictures you see to the left are not verbatim forecasts, just an example from the models how this cold pattern is expected to last. The blue lines represent "Cold" air. The deeper into the blue you are, the deeper the cold. If you notice much of the nation into through next week (16, and 21st shown here) are dominated with blue or cold air. This is something to get used to this winter: cold.
Back to the current week: For us the cold will come in waves. The first begins Thu, the second Fri with some light snow (up to 1" at most ... but first snow). The next comes around the 19th for us. Until Thursday .... enjoy the mild temps. It will be quite nice, esp. Veterans day.
To all our Veterans ... THANK YOU AND GOD BLESS YOU!!!

1. Pleasant weather Mon-Wednesday.
2. Turning much colder as arctic invasion of the US hits us Thursday and lasts for the foreseeable future. Welcome to the winter pattern. It is starting early this year.
3. Upper level wave associated with secondary arctic front likely to create some light snow for our area Thu night-Fri. Not a big storm but the first snow is always a big deal. 1” or less.
4. Fri - Sat cold, windy with clouds and sun.
5. Sun – Tue is a time period to be wary of. There could be a system moving out of the Southern Plains/Gulf of Mexico region. This could give us our first winter storm of snow/ice/rain. The potential is there, but it is just as likely to be pushed out to sea due to the strength of the cold air.
