A Cold and Somewhat Messy Weekend

Posted at 1:57 PM, Jan 25, 2019

We remain cold this weekend and a few showers at times will cause tricky conditions on roads. As of now, we’re mostly sunny and bitter with temperatures in the 20s and wind chill values in the single digits. Temperatures are generally cooler by about five degrees today compared to just 24 hours ago. We will warm slightly this weekend, but it will not be enough to keep all winter precipitation out of the mix.

After the sunshine today, we dive right back into a semi-active weather pattern with up and down temperatures along with a mix of precipitation types. First, early Saturday morning will be met with a few flurry or light snow showers. Amounts will be negligible with this first wave, but a dusting is possible through Saturday morning. Temperatures to rise above freezing tomorrow afternoon, but not by much. We’ll top out somewhere near the mid-30s. A better chance for precipitation arrives later in the weekend. As temperatures hover around freezing early Sunday morning, a weak front will usher in a mix of rain and snow. The coverage will mainly be north and along I-64. A few tenths of an inch of snow is likely all we’ll get from it. Temperatures continue to warm for the beginning of the next work week, but a midweek storm looks to bring a better chance at some snow.
