Arctic cold surges in behind the snow

Good Wednesday, everyone. A round of snow has left behind some slick roads. A surge of arctic air is filtering into the state on Wednesday and looks to hang around for a while.

Before we start looking ahead, I have some weather trackers for the morning:

Lows Wednesday morning will be in the low teens for much of the area. Gusty winds will make it feel closer to zero at times. Sunny skies return later in the day, but that does little to warm us up. Highs will range from 20 to 25 degrees, with a wind chill near 10.

Thursday is likely to be another very cold one, with lows in the teens and highs in the 20s. We do manage to keep the sunshine.

A windy system blows in by Friday morning and could send wind chills to zero or below. Check out the numbers from the GFS:

GFSThis will be followed by a possible light snow maker for Friday night and Saturday morning.

The next system rolling in later in the weekend could deliver a lot of precipitation, and it could come in many forms. It’s all about the track of the low. That’s something I will focus on in the coming days.

Make it a great Wednesday and take care.
