Tuesday 1/22 PM Forecast: Watching Late This Week!

TONIGHT: Wind chills will be below zero again overnight tonight as we’ll tumble back into the single digits. This can produce frostbite in 30 minutes. Ouch!

WEDNESDAY: Not a lot better. I look for highs in the middle 20’s. 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. As for clouds and precipitation: the models show a quick Alberta Clipper passing through with some light snow tomorrow. As we unfortunately saw yesterday, a quick snow squall can cause a major problem for drivers — so please be prepared for this possibility. Any accumulation should be under 1″. Tomorrow night, lows should be around 15 with still a few snow showers around especially east.

THURSDAY: I expect skies to be cloudy, 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 mix before changing to snow Friday morning. As of right now, it’s looking more snowy, but we’re fine-tuning this forecast so, keep it tuned here — especially as it relates to how much and where. 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 at BEST, and not the upper 30’s to middle 40’s the guidance suggests. Lows will be in the teens both mornings. The models show a dry Sunday before the next system moves in Sunday night with precipitation. That one, I can’t even begin to attempt a forecast just yet, without knowing what the Thursday night/Friday storm does — so stay tuned!
