Get ready for the coldest night of the winter season, so far. Temperatures will fall to around zero by early Sunday morning with wind chill values down to -12 degrees. Winds will be out of the north on the order of 5-15 mph. At that speed, little additional blowing and drifting snow is expected.
Sunday will be a very cold day. A weak disturbance will track over the area bringing us the chance for a few snow showers. With temperatures only around 13 for daytime highs, the snow could be quite fluffy where it falls. So, a quick 1/2 inch is possible. And keep in mind, with temperatures that cold, road chemicals will have little melting power.
Our next winter weathermaker is slated for Tuesday. This one could bring us several more inches of snow. However, there are a few models that mix in some rain to the equation. We will iron that out in the next day or so.
