Friday morning is not quite as cold, but still well below the normals for this time of the year:
The next big weather story will be the potential for accumulating snow on Sunday evening through Monday. The models have been signaling snow for a couple of days, but have not settled on a solution. On the good side, the timing is fairly consistent, and all three are hinting at snow. As you can see, there is a wide gap in the forecast snow amounts.

The Euro, which was showing 1-2" on Tuesday has now jumped off the deep end !
...a virtual flip-flop from yesterday. Of course, it is very early in the forecast process, and flip-flops are common.
