UPDATE – MONDAY 9:30 p.m. – so far no major changes. Models still have rain coming in for much of Thursday. Winds pick up overnight with the first burst of snow coming in Friday before dawn.
The snow will be moving fast so we should likely see a quick light accumulation of some wet snow followed by a huge temperature drop into the teens or even single digits during the day Friday which means anything that’s wet can flash freeze. Winds will continue in the 30 mph gust range during the day and randomly placed squalls are going to be possible. The main issue with those is brief reduced visibility.
Shoveling snow is not the major concern. Rather, the wind and wind chills are. The winds should gust above 30 mph and the wind chill should be below zero.
Lows will be in the single digits Friday and Saturday nights. Weekend snow should be relegated to just a few flurries at best as of this update.
(WOWK) – We saw a very cold weekend with high temperatures only in the teens and 20s, and colder than normal temperatures will be the theme for next weekend as well. Storm Tracker 13 Meteorologists predict a slight warming trend for the middle of next week before a major cold front move in Thursday and Friday.
With this next system that will move in at the end of next week forecast models are indicating rain on Thursday with precipitation transitioning into snow on Friday. Expect to see delays if you are starting your holiday travel at the end of the work week. Chances for showers will start to clear up Saturday morning. Christmas day will be dry with very cold temperatures.
The slight warming trend before the Front will cause Thursday’s high to be close to average, but once the cold air moves in high temperatures will only warm up to the 20s for the holiday weekend. Morning lows over the weekend will be brutally cold with single digit temperatures expected across the region Saturday and Christmas morning.
