Bitterly cold temps push in

Good Tuesday, folks. A dangerously cold air mass is pushing into the region and will bring brutally cold wind chills with it. Accompanying this arctic air will be a couple of snow chances, one early this morning then another later tonight.

A Winter Weather Advisory is out for parts of the region early today, with Wind Chill Advisories starting later tonight into Wendesday:

This isn’t a lot of snow by any means, but it may be just enough to cause slick travel conditions early today. That’s especially true with wet roads that can freeze up as temps drop into the teens. Wind chills will be in the single digits this morning.

The next front arrives later this evening and should produce a band of gusty light snows. That may also cause a few travel issues at times.

Temps absolutely tank and winds crank behind this. That’s a dangerous combination for wind chills. Our in house WSI RPM computer model has some off the charts wind chill numbers on Wednesday:

That’s absolutely brutal and can cause issues. Actual temps from Wednesday morning through Thursday morning may range from -5 to 5 above. This is a full blown Frozen Pipes Alert!
The bitter cold pulls away by Friday, with overrunning moisture moves in, producing some winter weather:
