Winter has returned with a cold, windy and snowy start to the day. These same headlines will be good for later on today and overnight tonight as well as we should continue to see temperatures sliding to single digits over the next 24 hours.
Snow showers and windy conditions will persist through today with overcast skies. Some slick spots on roads will be possible so motorists are advised to use extra caution. Visibility could be reduced to a mile or less as well with blowing snow. We will see a slight warm-up today with afternoon highs in the mid to perhaps upper 20s.
Model data has been pretty consistent with single digits and subzero wind chill values for Friday morning. School delays could be issued due to the cold start to the day with wind chill values falling to -7 to -17 degrees. Those wind chill values are just outside the threshold for frost bite setting in in less than 15 minutes.
Friday highs will only hit the upper teens but we will continue to warm overnight heading into your Saturday. Expect a Saturday high near 32 degrees with 1 to 3 inches of snow possible through the day. Sunday will be colder with highs in the mid-20s. Next week will see temperatures hovering around freezing for the start of the week. Monday’s high should hit the mid 30s with a chance for a mix of snow and rain during the evening hours. Tuesday could see up to two inches of new snow with highs in the mid 30s. Finally on Wednesday expect a high near freezing with some sunshine during the afternoon.
