Remaining Ad Time Ad - 00:00

In case you missed how much snow fell last night click here for the totals. 

Tonight: Partly to mostly sky as temperatures drop into the single digits above zero shortly after midnight. Temperatures warm a couple of degrees late tonight. The wind shifts from the SW to the NW at 5-15 mph. Wild chills could be as cold as 10 below zero.

Thursday: Temperatures warm just a couple of degrees during the morning then fall to near zero in the afternoon. A few flurries are possible as a cold front pushes through the area during the morning. A WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY is in effect for Thursday because of blowing snow not any new snow falling. The winds will gust to 35 or 40 mph from the northwest causing significant blowing snow in the open country. Wind chills in the afternoon will range from 15 to 30 below zero. The wind diminishes slowly after sunset.

Thursday Night: The sky is clear and the wind lightens up during the evening. Low temperatures are very cold dropping into the teens below zero. Dangerous wind chills are possible. Wind chills could be as cold as 35 below late Thursday night into Friday morning. This is the reason for the WIND CHILL WATCH in effect for Thursday evening through Friday morning.

Friday: There is a small chance of light snow or flurries. Any snow accumulation would be less than 1”. Temperatures only warm to near zero during the afternoon. The wind is light, but wind chills are still in the teens below zero.

Saturday: Temperatures are in the teens below zero to start the day and warm to near 10 by the afternoon under a mostly cloudy sky.

Sunday into Monday we are tracking a storm to bring us snow. Several inches of snow are possible. Too early so say just how much and where. More details to come. Early timing on this is light snow Sunday and heavier snow Sunday night and Monday.

Dangerous cold and wind chills follow for Tuesday and Wednesday.
