It was a a cold sunshine type of day across the area Saturday with morning temperatures in the single digits and wind chills below zero for almost everyone. We held onto those negative wind chills throughout much of the day.
Overnight Saturday, the cold will continue to slither into the area with overnight lows dropping below zero and wind chills getting below -10 degrees for some. Even with more sunshine moving Sunday, it will still be a cold day with wind chills sitting near or below zero again.
Our next best chance for snow starts late Monday as two different energies move through the region. The first comes in during supper time Monday that can add up to an inch of fresh snow to our totals from Friday. The second, a larger system that could have an extended period of snowfall through late Tuesday evening. Total snowfall accumulations will be a widespread 2 to 4” with localized amounts reaching +6”. Most models are in good agreement with the placement of this system, and timing for the second round of snow starts early Tuesday morning.
Our warmest temperatures will likely be Monday and Tuesday and those could be the warmest we’ll get for the rest of January. More arctic air moves in behind this next storm that will bring a swath of cold air and below zero temperatures by late next week.
