Thursday: Frigid temperatures have moved in overnight and will lead to temperatures in the single digits and teens below zero Thursday morning. A light wind around 2-8 mph out of the west will only make it feel cooler with wind chills dropping to -25 to -35 degrees with a wind chill advisory in place until 10 a.m. Despite the bone-chilling cold, we will see blue skies and sunshine with an afternoon high of only 1 degree above zero.
Thursday night: Mostly clear skies stick around this evening with another cold night ahead. Winds will shift out of the south ahead of our next snowmaker, which should bump temperatures a few degrees, but we will still fall to 5 below zero.
Friday: Our eyes turn to a significant system set to begin impacting the area with heavy snow during the afternoon on Friday. Clouds will increase during the morning hours with snow likely to begin during the afternoon hours and continue into Saturday. Temperatures on Friday will climb to 22 degrees as the snow moves in.
The focus for the weekend continues to be the potential for 6-10 inches of snow from Friday afternoon into Saturday evening. There will also be a lot of wind with this system that will create blowing and drifting snow and very difficult driving conditions. The snow should be done by Sunday with calmer and colder conditions moving in next week.
