Some wintry weather is expected in the next few days. We could get some brief but heavy rain or snow (accumulations under an inch) as the arctic front passes through tonight and early tomorrow. Temperatures will drop throughout the day as gusty northwest winds bring in cold air. Lows flirt with 0 degrees Monday night and windchills are dangerously low– as cold as -25 degrees in some places, so bundle up when you go outside! As this is the coldest air since 1994, school closures on Tuesday seem very possible. Windchills that low can freeze exposed skin in half an hour. After this, temperatures rise again slowly Wednesday and Thursday before the potential for a wintry mix comes on Thursday night. Ice, snow, and rain are all possibilities but no significant snow or ice is expected at this time.
