Snow showers and a frigid mid-April air mass parked itself in the region today. Gusty NW winds brought wind chills to single digits while temps cooled from the lower 30’s to the lower 20’s. As we head into tonight, snow showers will continue early with partial clearing expected late. Throughout the night, anticipate low temps drop to the lower teens. Winds remain breezy between 10 to 20 mph, so watch out for wind chills in the lower single digits and in some areas below zero.
By Tuesday, flurries linger during the afternoon with winds lightening to 5 to 15 mph from the N. However that will only add fuel to the fire, or should I say ice to the freezer, because high temps are only expected to reach the lower and middle 20’s for afternoon highs.
Tomorrow night skies cloud back up as we prepare for our second snow event of the week. Lows look to fall to the middle and lower teens, but thankfully winds will calm, so wind chills won’t be a concern for the overnight. Most of us return to the 30’s for highs on Wednesday, but that will also be accompanied by heavy accumulating snowfall.
Bundle up for this April chill. Winter is back for now!
