WEATHER BLOG: Cold Weather Ahead
A brief bout of sleet and snow earlier Tuesday gave way to rain and drizzle for the rest of the day. There is one more round of showers mixed with some sleet that is actually the front moving eastward across the state Tuesday evening. When that front clears your area, gusty winds will turn around to the northwest and bring in drier, colder air.
We did make it to the mid 40s, but will only top out in the 30s Wednesday. When you factor in the winds, it will feel more like it’s in the teens to 20s. There may even be a few flurries coming in on those gusty winds. Winds will back off somewhat on Thursday, although the chilly air will linger. Then, another storm system moves our way Friday into Saturday.
The next storm moving our way may feature some mixed wintry weather at the start before changing to rain for Saturday. It’s a very strung out storm that may even keep a few showers around into early Sunday. Temperatures will still be close to or below the average of 46 degrees by Saturday afternoon but should rebound slightly early next week.
