Monday Night: Areas of ice, Dangerously cold wind chills tonight

Weather

Tonight – All wintry precipitation has ended. All ice on the surface will remain in place. Expect bitterly cold and potentially dangerous temperatures. Wind chills in the single digits. Lows near 12.

Fat Tuesday – Don’t expect much of the ice to melt tomorrow. Temperatures will only climb above freezing for about 4-5 hours. Any liquid will re-freeze Tuesday night. Highs near 36.

Extended – Temperatures will dip back into the 20s by Tuesday night. We finally climb well-above freezing by Wednesday. Temperatures will quickly jump into the 50s. We’ll have plenty of time for current accumulations to melt. However, showers and storms arrive Wednesday night. Storms could be strong to severe. We currently sit under a Marginal Risk for severe weather. Once the system clears, we gradually get back to normal by the weekend. Anticipate highs in the 60s for Saturday and Sunday with mostly sunny skies.
