Flakes to A Bitter Blast

The fade in temps is on as yesterday’s mid 30s transition into mid 20s to low 30s today.  We’ll add in a breeze too and that adds to the chill of the air. Once again, another round of snow showers/squalls work through.  With colder air in place, a few of the heavier snow showers/squalls will have an easier time sticking today.  Careful of some slick spots if you’re out and about and you get caught in a squall.  Generally, a coating to an inch is expected from these, although not every town will see them.

?While I don’t expect a lot of snow, some light snow/snow showers are possible late Friday night/Saturday morning as the arctic front that barrels in, pulls in a little moisture from an offshore ocean storm. 

The story into the weekend is going to be the brutal cold that moves in. To say it’s good snuggle weather on Valentines Day would be an understatement for sure.  It’ll be the coldest air since last winter with many towns below 0 by Sunday morning. Not only are the cold temperatures the story, but we also add in a gusty wind that’ll drive wind chill values down to -20 to -30 late Saturday night and Sunday morning!  That’s the kind of cold that can be dangerous.  If you’re outside for an extended period of time, cover any exposed skin to protect it from frostbite and please don’t leave you furry friends outdoors!  Bring the pets in!

The core of the cold relaxes by Monday afternoon and by Monday night and Tuesday, we’re tracking the next storm in here.  Snow to freezing to rain is the theme on Tuesday. 

Stay warm!
