Spotty wintry mix for some; gradually cooling down all day
High temperatures are being set this morning
A spotty wintry mix will continue throughout the morning hours before tapering off this afternoon. Light snow accumulations in northern and western Pocahontas county are possible. This is why the National Weather Service has issued a Winter Weather Advisory. The advisory is set to expire at 7 AM this morning.
An arctic high pressure pushes south today. This will help to usher in colder temperatures. Highs today are already being set. We will see temperatures gradually fall throughout the day. Currently, we are in the 30s/low 40s. By lunchtime, most of us will fall into the low-mid 30s. This evening right, after sunset, temperatures will read in the 20s for most.
Lows tonight plummet into the teens and the single digits. Wind chill values for most will be in the single digits, but the higher elevation spots could be even colder. Northern and western Pocahontas county is under a Wind Chill Advisory beginning at 10 PM Tuesday and continuing until 10 AM Wednesday. Areas in the advisory could witness wind chills as low as 15 below zero. Few flurries are possible to still fly around for some of us.
Some flurries are still possible tomorrow morning, but we should have some sun build in tomorrow. Don’t let that fool you though! We remain cold all day with highs only working into the 20s.
Southerly flow is in store on Thursday meaning we should be warmer. Looking at highs to hit the upper 30s and 40s before we cool down again on Saturday. The start of the weekend will be frigid! Saturday morning we will be in the single digits (few places even near/at 0 degrees!) Saturday afternoon most will rise into the teens...
We are tracking another round of snow for Friday and Saturday. Could see a few flakes as early as Thursday night. This is all dependent on the track/timing of the system. For now, it doesn’t look to bring big accumulations, but a few inches are showing up on some models.
