Valentine’s Day Update

Good afternoon, everyone. Our frigid Valentine’s Day continues as temps struggle through the 20s on a blast of arctic air. The hit and run snow showers put down light accumulations and a few of those are still at it this afternoon. As we head into the weekend, temps come up.

The snow shower action is falling in arctic air and that means two things. 1. It doesn’t take much moisture to spit out flakes. 2. The flakes are mostly filled with air and can be brushed away.

Here’s your regional radar…

Temps are frigid again tonight before bouncing back on Saturday. Highs reach the 40s with a mix of clouds and sun.

Sunday is milder, but a sneaky system brings a few late day showers into play, especially in the north and east…

Temps continue to climb Monday and Tuesday, but with a wet price. Showers and a few storms move in ahead of a potent cold front. There’s a lot of cold air coming in behind this and we will need to watch for a second system pushing through a few days later. That one could be a winter weather maker.

The models continue to show something, but can’t quite figure it out…

    It was a bitterly cold 8 below zero this morning at the NWS office at Romeoville in the SW suburbs, with the coldest wind chill at 20 below zero! O’Hare Airport got down to 2 below zero (first time below zero this winter).

    With fresh snow pack, clear skies, and light winds, it’s amazing how low the temps can get at night, even in mid-February.

    Nice to see a dry forecast for you guys in Kentucky, Tennessee, and West Virginia for the next few days. You certainly need it, and hopefully that will ease the flood concerns (until next week, at least).

    I’ve not posted in past two weeks, because winter is so sad…but I just heard something on the Radio here in Lexington that made me laugh out loud. It’s stated that We would be under the freezing mark for a WHOLE 24 hours…
