TODAY: I’ve been thinking we would have a few snow showers around the area, but it looks like that will not be the case. Consequently, I’m going with partly cloudy skies. Highs will barely make 25. Lows tonight fall into the single digits ABOVE zero and wind chills go BELOW zero. I’m going with 8 degrees for the low. The National Weather Service has posted Wind Chill Advisories north of the loop for tonight for wind chills of lower than -10 degrees. Ouch!!!
TUESDAY: If Monday was an “ouch”, Tuesday is even more so. How about a high of just 17 under sunny skies? That’s looking like our reality… 😦 Wind chills will be below zero in the morning and again overnight. Ouch again!
WEDNESDAY: Not a lot better. Look for highs in the middle 20’s after beginning around 10 again. Once more, wind chills in the morning could be below zero pending the wind — this would especially be true north of the I-275 loop.
THURSDAY AND FRIDAY: I told you Saturday that I didn’t buy into the guidance that had us near 40, and the latest trends continue to bear this out, going colder. I will go with 31, as what looks like an upper wave should cross the area. That wave brings snow on Thursday night and Friday, with a low back around 24 and a high on Friday only in the upper 20’s. Yes, this is a nudge downward again.
SATURDAY: We clear things out — but we also turn cold again! The latest guidance is suggesting 25 may be all we do — and if we have snow on the ground, I can definitely buy that. Right now, I will go 30 though — hedging my bets on snow cover that may not be there doesn’t seem like a good call to me.
