The storm system that brought light to moderate snowfall to the area on Monday has moved out of the region, but its impacts are still being felt across the area in the way of snow cover on our roads and the raw winds associated with that system are keeping our wind chill values on the coder side for this last day of the year.
Expect gusty, raw winds in the morning hours with some localized blowing snow concerns. Skies will gradually clear in the afternoon with diminishing winds making for a slightly better weather picture for the tail end of the day. High temperatures will be in the mid-20s which is typical for this time of the year, but wind chill values will hover in the single digits through the afternoon and evening.
We'll enjoy some quiet weather for New Year's Eve, and while temperatures will be in the seasonably cold teens, winds will be much lighter and those chilly temperatures will actually begin to rebound later in the night thanks to a slight southwest breeze that will kick in.
We'll have occasional sunshine for the first day of 2020 Wednesday with a brisk southwest breeze working to pull in more warmth. Afternoon high temperatures tomorrow will be in the mid-30s with winds occasionally reaching 20 miles per hour.
After another fairly mild day Thursday, a weak clipper type storm system will graze the area to the southwest, bringing a slight chance for a few light snow showers, but no accumulation is expected. High temperatures Friday will be in the lower 30s.
The weekend is looking slightly colder with a little sunshine possible Saturday before a weak storm system looks to bring a chance for some light snow Sunday and high temperature will be close to 30 degrees.
