Blowing Snow Stays Problematic

The wind is cutting through us today, in a couple of ways.  Not only has the wind brought us the blustery conditions with feels like temperatures down in the single digits, but blowing snow is a big factor in rural/open areas.  Rural gravel, county and state roads are in the worst shape as a result from blowing snow.  Some slippery patches are also possible in the federal and interstate highways too.  As long as the wind hangs around, I expect blowing snow to remain an issue.  There's no signs of it relenting until Friday.

Temperatures each afternoon for the next three will peg into the upper teens, our coldest of the season by far.  Overnight lows will be sandwiched either side of 10° due to ample cloud cover expected.  If we find a clear patch, readings may drop down far cooler over our recent snow coat.  Wind chills in the coldest times will dip down around -5°.

Some flurries linger around for Wednesday.  Snow may become slightly more potent on Thursday with a minor accumulation possible, but again, the biggest impact will come from blowing snow.  I'm also eyeing a large scale storm system Friday night into the weekend that could bring the snow blowers out of hibernation.  Too early to call specific amounts but confidence is building we see measurable snow in this timeframe.  After which, another drop in temperatures is expected.  Our first sub-zero temps of the season make an appearance. 

Tonight: Mostly cloudy and windy.  Blowing snow.  Lows in the middle 10s. Wind: W 10-20 gusts to 30 mph.

Wednesday: Mostly cloudy and breezy.  Flurry possible.  Blowing snow.  Highs in the upper teens.  Wind: W 10-25 gusts to 35 mph.

Thursday: Mostly cloudy, slight chance of snow.  Minor accumulation.  Blowing snow.  Highs in the upper teens.

Friday: Partly cloudy.  Highs in the upper teens.

Saturday: Mostly cloudy. A chance for snow early and again late. Highs in the middle 20s.

Sunday: Mostly cloudy. Accumulating snow likely.  Breezy.  Highs in the middle 20s.

Monday: Partly cloudy. Slight chance of snow.  Highs in the lower 10s.
