Three Dog Nights are coming in a couple of weeks, read on to find out what this means!

A rather quiet week of weather is upcoming for our area with only scattered showers possible around Friday and Saturday. A little bit of light snow is possible on the tail end of that front Saturday night with colder temperatures Sunday. Most of this week will be fair to partly cloudy with high temperatures near normal for this time of year with the warmest day expected to be 50 to 55 degrees on Friday.

It continues to look like we could see a return to winter weather. The door to Arctic air should open up between the 17th and the end of the month, and by the 25th temperatures will likely be colder than they were during this recent system.

Did you know the musical group Three Dog Night from the early 70s got their name from something weather-related? Vocalist Danny Hutton’s girlfriend suggested the name after reading a magazine article about Aboriginal Australians, in which it was explained that on cold nights they would customarily sleep in a hole in the ground while embracing a dingo, a native species of wild dog. On colder nights they would sleep with two dogs and, if the night was freezing, it was a “three dog night.”
