It certainly cold over the weekend, but we didn’t even come close to breaking any records. Records from Sunday and Monday were anywhere between 10 and 20 below zero, and our temps were as low as 0. Not taking anything away from this cold snap, our wind chills later this week again could reach advisory criteria like we had on Sunday.
Looking at the snow potential for the week, we have three chances. Our first is tomorrow with a clipper type low and a cold front. Amounts will average between 1 and 3 inches, with the most falling west of I-99. The second round is on Thursday with the lake effect machine getting cranked up. Some of the activity on Thursday could be heavy, especially in the Laurel Mountains. The third is on Saturday, and this will come with a push of warmer air.
That push of warm air is going to come at us in full force early next week, with highs expected to be in the 40s! How long that lasts….will be something we talk about next time!
