Good afternoon, gang. Bands of light snow are putting down enough accumulations to cover roads in some areas, leading to slick travel conditions. Behind this, we get another light snow system on Sunday, with brutally cold temps to follow.
The light snow is overachieving in some areas, with the potential for a local half to one inch showing up. With a frozen ground, snow has NO problem coating or covering roads. Throw some friction from traffic into the mix, and you’re going to get some roads to become skating rinks. This might be a good time for a short-fused Winter Weather Advisory for a few areas.
I will have your tracking tools in a bit.
The bitter cold comes crashing in behind this later today, with temps dropping through the teens from north to south. Wind chills will reach -5 at times by late evening. Those wind wills should be in the zero to -10 range Sunday morning with actual temps in the single digits.
Another snow streak comes through the northern half of the state on Sunday, leading to the potential for something similar to today.
Temps are going to be brutal from this point. Highs are generally in the teens from Sunday-Tuesday, with a few areas barely into the teens. Overnight lows go like this:
- Monday morning will see temps from 0 to -5 in the north and 0 to 5 above for much of the rest of the state. Wind chills will be solidly below zero.
- Tuesday will be the coldest with the potential for readings in the far north to get as low as -10. The rest of the state should go from -5 to +5. Wind chills range from -5 to -15 at times.
- This is dangerous stuff and you should take all weatherproofing precautions now.
Wednesday finds another arctic front diving in here and that could produce some light snow, with the chance for some northwesterly flow snow showers into Thursday. This will unleash ANOTHER brutally cold shot that could rival the early week numbers.
Let’s get back to today’s light snow and track it all…
