Conditions will remain pretty constant throughout the course of the weekend. Tonight, we will see a suspense of precipitation seen earlier today with clouds remaining overnight. Tomorrow the clouds will stick around for the course of the day with cold air keeping temperatures below average. Saturday clouds will remain in the area with calm conditions at ground level. Sunday clouds will stick around through the morning through mid afternoon but will begin to dry out through the night breaking up clouds and giving more sunny conditions going into Monday.

Technical Discussion (The nerdy stuff we are discussing in class!) 
A high pressure system will be responsible for cold air advection is keeping conditions consistent through the entirety of the weekend. With air coming from the north to northeast, we will continue to see temperatures below freezing through tonight and tomorrow. The 300-500mb level will be saturated tomorrow morning to mid afternoon which will keep clouds around. Eventually the saturation continues into the mid-lower atmosphere at 600 mb later Friday night, until this saturation disappears and the 300mb level begins the process all over again. The 300mb-500mb levels will remain saturated from late Friday night through late Sunday afternoon keeping clouds around for the weekend. The 700 mb level will be extremely dry throughout Sunday keeping the possibility of precipitation non-existent. Temps will remain below freezing during this saturation and drying out through Sunday.
