It’s cold… and more snow is on the way!

We saw some light snow over the weekend, but it was kind of nice to wake up to a blanket of white on Sunday morning! At least the kids were excited, and they went out to play for what ended up being about 20-minutes. The best part was coming back in to sit by the fire and drink hot chocolate, I think! 🙂 Totals ranged from 1/2 inch to just under 2″ in some spots. And boy, did temperatures CRASH!! Early Sunday morning, around 5am, we were in the upper 40s! By Sunday evening, we were in the teens. And take a look at our 24-hour temperature change, comparing this morning at 5am to yesterday morning at 5am:

FORTY DEGREES COLDER! Wow!! With breezy conditions to start, some of our northern counties will occasionally see wind chill values dip to or just below -10… thus, the NWS has issued a Wind Chill Advisory until 8am for these areas:

Today, we will get to enjoy some sunshine through the first part of the day. Clouds will be on the increase later this afternoon, as temperatures push into the mid-20s for highs. We will be running about 10-degrees below normal on afternoon highs.

Tonight, the next system moves in, bringing in the chance for more snow showers. The forecasted snowfall amounts look pretty similar to what we saw over the weekend:

Although it will be a light event, it will be WINDY, so blowing and drifting snow will keep the roads slick. And THIS time, it’s happening during a morning commute, so be aware the drive to work on Tuesday may be slower. We could also be dealing with school delays tomorrow, and you can keep tabs on the list here: WDTN SCHOOL DELAYS. Of course, we are on-air on @WDTN Channel 2, beginning at 4:30am with updates!
