Final snow update; temperatures to plunge

We measured a final additional inch of snow fall at westofthei.com headquarters from 5:30 a.m. to about 3:15 p.m., Wednesday. That’s a total of 5 inches for the storm that started Tuesday afternoon.

The latest, local National Weather Service forecast for our area suggests we are done with snow for a few days, but we will be confronted with drastically colder air temperatures. Temperatures are expected to begin diving about 3 p.m., Thursday, eventually dipping to -9 by 6 a.m. Friday. Friday’s high is expected to only reach 1 and Friday night’s low should reach -10. It won’t be much better Saturday, with a high of 10 and a low of 0, and Sunday with a high of 8 and a low of 4.

But while thermometer readings will be low, the biggest impact may come from wind chill. Breezy conditions mean wind chill values between -20 and -30 are possible Thursday night and Friday.

Down the line, an 80 percent chance of snow is in the forecast for Sunday and Monday; no word on possible accumulation yet. Temperatures lower than 10 degrees will persist through at least Wednesday, except for Monday, which may have a high of 19.
