Tuesday 1/22 Forecast: Dangerously Cold!

A WIND CHILL ADVISORY continues for much of the area except southern counties until 10:00…

TODAY: If yesterday was bone-chilling, today 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 this morning and again overnight tonight as we’ll tumble back into the single digits. This can produce frostbite in 30 minutes. 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. Another wrinkle: The models show a quick Alberta Clipper passing through with some light snow. As we unfortunately saw yesterday, a quick snow squall can cause a major problem for drivers — so please be prepared for this possibility.

THURSDAY: I expect skies to cloud up, but I think we stay dry with highs around 30.

THURSDAY NIGHT AND FRIDAY: This looks like it could be bad. A winter storm will move across the southeast. Depending on the track, we could see snow, sleet, freezing rain, or a mixture of these in this time period before a switch back over to snow Friday morning. Lows Thursday night will be in the middle 20’s and highs on Friday struggle to the upper 20’s.

SATURDAY: We clear things out — but we also turn cold again! The latest guidance is still suggesting 25 may be all we do, and I agree with it here, so we’ll go with 25 or so.

SUNDAY/MONDAY: I don’t agree with the guidance on this one. If we have snow cover around, and I think we may, then I would expect highs Sunday and Monday in the low to middle 30’s, and not the upper 30’s to middle 40’s the guidance suggests. Lows will be in the teens both mornings.
