A Cold, Snowy Week Ahead

I hope you had a chance to get out and enjoy the mild temperatures over the weekend, because the warm air is long gone and it won’t be back for quite a while. The week ahead will be bitterly cold with several chances of light snow.

First and most importantly be very careful on your way to work and school this morning. Freezing rain overnight has covered roads and surfaces with a layer of ice. It is extremely slippery this morning, especially on untreated surfaces.

Today will be partly cloudy, breezy and much colder. High temps will only reach the single digits either side of zero with the wind chill factor hovering in the 15 to 30 below range. A Wind Chill Advisory is in effect for much of the region today into tonight.

An active weather pattern will bring several chances of light snow this week. Light snow will develop late tonight and continue through most of the day tomorrow. About 1 or 2 inches of accumulation will be possible. Another system will bring more light snow on Wednesday and yet another system will bring more light snow on Thursday.

In addition to the light snow, each of these systems will also bring down more cold, Arctic air. By Thursday and Friday, low temperatures will drop back in the 15 to 25 below zero range with highs hovering in the single digits either side of zero.

Temperatures will warm slightly by the weekend with another chance of light snow by Sunday into Monday.
