A potentially messy morning commute on Friday will be the sideshow to the weekend's big weather story: near-record cold.
The National Weather Service is forecasting a 60 percent chance of sleet and snow Friday morning. Total accumulation is forecast to be light.
Highs on Friday are forecast to be relatively mild — in the 20s — because the storm will be blowing in from the West Coast.
On the heels of that storm, however, the weather turns cold starting Friday night.
AccuWeather is forecasting subzero lows ranging from 2 below on Saturday to 4 below on Monday and Tuesday morning.
Records for those days range from 4 below to 13 degrees below zero.
More snow is possible through the weekend and into early next week. While total accumulation isn't clear, these storms are not expected to be major.
