Snow showers and flurries will move out later this afternoon. Little if any accumulation is expected.

Blustery conditions continue. We’ve seen gusts higher than 40 mph in some spots on our SkyTrak 13 WeatherBug Network! Gusts to 40 will diminish to gusts to 30 this evening.

Temps will hover in the upper teens to mid 20s for the rest of the afternoon with single digit wind chills. That’s a far cry from yesterday’s balmy 60-degree high!

Tonight, skies clear and winds let up a bit, but we’ll still have Northwesterly winds 10-20 mph. That combined with temps falling into the upper single digits to low teens will lead to wind chills between -10 and 0!

We stay dry on Wednesday, but late Thursday into early Friday, get ready for a messy mix. My hunch right now is that we’ll start late Thursday afternoon or early Thursday evening with snow or snow/sleet mix. Some minor accumulation – maybe an inch or two – is possible. Then as warmer air rides in over that system, the snow and sleet will transition to freezing rain and rain. Some computer models are indicating some ice accumulation on top of the snow. That could create big problems on the roads for the Friday morning rush.

By Friday afternoon, any leftover moisture turns to rain and temps push into the 40s, paving the way for a mild and pleasant weekend.

Take Care and stay warm!
