Jennifer Edwards Baker reports:
Winter’s chill is back with howling winds gusting more than 30 mph and frigid temperatures that will barely make it out of the 20s today.
By tonight, wind chills will dip below zero.
Watch out for a light dusting of snow this morning during your commute. Snow flurries will fall off and on all day.
The National Weather Service has issued a special weather statement for the entire area warning of slick roads this morning. Moderate pockets of snow may result in a dusting to a few tenths of an inch of snow, the Weather Service said. That, along with the moisture from yesterday’s rains could create slick spots, especially on bridges and overpasses.
The snow could also reduce visibility on area roads, the Weather Service warned.
Yesterday’s winds will also continue today with gusts up to 35 mph. That will mean wind chills around 10 to 15 degrees until about 10 a.m.
Later, the high temperature will struggle to reach 30 with wind chills remaining in the teens.
Tonight will be downright arctic with a low of 12 and wind chills of -2 as snow begins drifting down. About an inch of snow could accumulate overnight into early Friday.
Friday should be mostly sunny, but we’ll stay in the deep freeze with a high temperature only reaching 20 and wind chill values as low as -4.
More snow could fly early Saturday, totaling about an inch.
Temperatures this weekend will push into the 30s with overnight lows into the 20s.
