First Alert Weather Days Thursday-Friday With Snow & Bitter Cold On The Way
First Alert Weather:
- First Alert Weather Day Thursday due to snow, mainly afternoon-evening
- First Alert Weather Day Friday-Saturday AM due to Strong Winds & Dangerous Cold
- Dry, cold weather expected Christmas Eve & Day
Tuesday & Wednesday: Cloudy, cold and seasonably chilly. Finish up all your errands.
Thursday: Accumulating snow appears likely. Moderate travel impacts should be anticipated during the heaviest of the snowfall. While we may see some light rain for parts of the region Thursday morning, travel in the morning will likely be dry or wet from a light rain shower. From Noon on, the chances for snow increase as we’ll see a quick change to snow in the afternoon and hazardous travel for the evening commute. Temperatures will rapidly fall Thursday afternoon and we’ll be in the teens in the evening and eventually the single digits.
There is still some uncertainty on exactly when the snow ends, but the latest model trend is for snow to taper off Thursday late evening and dry for Friday morning. However, stay with us for updates as that may change. It’s still a bit early to pinpoint snow totals, but you’ll see our snow chances show a good bet for 2″+ of snowfall.
Friday: We’ll keep you posted if snow shows up again in the Friday forecast, it’s possible but the trend is for additional snow on Friday to miss our area to the northeast. However, Friday is when we get our strongest winds and some of the coldest air. Wind chills will range from -10 to -30 from morning through the evening. Wind gusts from 40-50 MPH could take down tree branches and possibly tree limbs in isolated spots.
Below zero temperatures are expected Friday and Saturday morning. The last time we had below zero temperatures in December was 33 years ago in 1989.
Christmas eve still has dangerous cold in the morning and then the frigid air starts easing but remains very cold. However, travel for the holiday on Saturday and Sunday will be dry.
Stay tuned for more on the approaching winter storm as we could still see significant changes. We will provide more specific details as we get closer to the storm.
