We're starting the workweek on a sour note today thanks to the arrival of a storm system and its Arctic cold front that will create slick conditions and drop our temperatures dramatically.
Light snow and some pockets of freezing drizzle will be possible through the morning and early afternoon with an inch or two of accumulation possible. Roads and sidewalks may become a little extra slippery because of that light glaze of ice from the freezing drizzle and freezing fog in our area. Temperatures will drop off from the upper 20s to the teens in the afternoon as northwest winds will pick up, occasionally reach 30 to 40 miles per hour. Wind chill values will be below zero by sunset. Evening temperatures will be in the single digits.
Skies will begin to clear this evening, but a few flurries will still be possible while raw northwest winds will take until midnight to drop off. Temperatures will fall slightly below zero late tonight with wind chills as cold as -20.
Cold high pressure will stick around for Tuesday and Wednesday, bringing bright, cold sunshine to the region and high temperatures will be in the single digits for both days while morning low temperatures will be below zero, especially on Wednesday morning when we may see some spots reach the -10 range.
Warmer air will build in for Thursday as a storm system approaches from the west. Light snow will be possible later in the morning and through the afternoon Thursday with a coating of an inch or two of accumulation possible and high temperatures will be in the mid-20s.
Another storm system will bring a chance of light snow late Friday and Friday night with another light coating possible and high temperatures will be in the lower 30s.
The weekend looks blustery and seasonably cold with high temperatures in the 20s Saturday and then teens Sunday with increasing sunshine through the weekend.
