Temps Tumble with Strong Winds & SnowBy
Temperatures will quickly fall to 0 by early Monday morning with wind chill readings up to -25. A strong cold front pushing across the state tonight will likely create snow squalls. Whiteout conditions are possible with wind gusts up to 45mph. A quick 1-2″ of snow is possible, but what is more concerning, is blowing and drifting snow, along with the dangerous cold moving in. A Winter Weather Advisory is in effect until noon Monday.
Monday through Wednesday a Wind Chill Warning and Wind Chill Advisory is effect. Bottom line, wind chills of up to -40 possible, the coldest look to be Tuesday morning. During this timeframe, frostbite can occur in minutes, so please take care if you have to head out.
“Warmer” air arrives for the weekend, but timing is everything. As of right now a wintry mix is possible. We’ll nail down the precip type and what to expect as we get closer to that system moving in.
