Arctic Air Is On The Way

Arctic air is on the way, and set to hit this upcoming weekend and stretch into next week with high temperatures below zero and overnight lows 10-25 below. Dangerous wind chills will accompany this arctic air possibly dipping below 50 below.

Through the week ahead a couple of clipper systems will bring an almost daily chance for light snow and or flurries with the bulk of light snow accumulations occurring overnight. This will likely lead into slippery morning commutes through Friday morning. A modest clipper heads in Thursday evening into Friday morning a were a couple of inches of snow looks possible. By weeks end a general 1-3 inches of snow is what I expect for most, but a few may pick up slightly higher amounts. On and off breezy conditions will also be ongoing through this week that will cause some areas of patchy drifting snow, also leading to potential slippery travels from a light glazed over road.

Cold air again sinks in this upcoming weekend and looks to push through the first week of February, potentially longer. This cold snap was predicted a couple of months ago by us using the LRC. Be looking for another cold snap mid February with a couple of big storms possible in the area according to the LRC.
