Bitter Cold Saturday & Storm Thoughts
Busy times in the Storm Tracker Weather Office tonight! First off is the bitter cold this weekend. Tonight skies will clear and winds will relax a bit, but the wind chill will be a huge part of your Saturday forecast. Skies will be mainly clear overnight and temperatures will drop into the lower-teens, but with the light winds in place, it will feel as cold as 3 degrees in the morning and highs top out in the 20s, but will feel like the teens in the afternoon. Clouds will build in Saturday with a slight chance of a late day snow shower with no accumulations. Sunday will start off cold with lows in the teens and top out near 40. Sunday will be mostly cloudy and will have a slight chance of snow/ rain showers. once again with no accumulations. Sunshine returns for Monday morning along with seasonable temperatures. Monday night is the time to watch for the development of a coastal storm. It will likely start off as snow and mixing with and over to rain is possible. There are many variables in play with this storm. The intensity, timing, and the track are the keys to precipitation type and how much we ultimately see. Monday after 7pm through Tuesday at midnight is the likely timeframe for impact from the storm. As of now, I would plan on slippery and slow road travel and the need for snow removal. With mixing snow and rain, the snow will become heavy and wet and could be hazardous for some people to try to move. This weekend will help cement the forecast a little better so, pardon the line, stay tuned!
