18 hour futurecast:
At least it is mild! Highs today in the mid and upper 40s.
Arctic air is on the move across the country this morning.
Temperatures will fall late tonight and keep falling during the day tomorrow. The wind will howl and it will feel like January, that’s for sure.
Wind chills probably no higher than the lower teens in the afternoon; single digits by evening.
Flurries around but we are not expecting accumulating snow Wednesday.
On Thursday, a weak, fast-moving system will track our way and we may pick up a coating to an inch or so of fluffy snow during the afternoon and evening. I will have more on this later today.
WEEKEND STORM: A MISS TO SOUTH
It appears that we will dodge a winter storm that will bring accumulating snow and ice to parts of the Southeast. Our weekend looks pretty tranquil and cold.
Big pattern change ahead for next week and beyond. After a frigid stretch, milder days are ahead. Our January forecast calls for a warmer-than-average month.
