Cold weekend to end with snow; then even colder

If you thought we weren’t going to see any real winter this year during our mostly mild December, you may have changed your mind by now. And if you haven’t, the weather over the next week might be the clincher.

This weekend — after the continuation of the coldest stretch of temperatures we have seen for a long time — will end with more sizable snow.

The National Weather Service is sending our some mixed — or perhaps just incomplete – messages on how much white stuff at this point. At about 10:30 a.m. the latest, local forecast calls for 1 to 3 inches of accumulation Sunday night. Snow is expected to continue Monday but no word on how much to expect locally yet.

However, earlier on Friday the NWS posted this graphic on Facebook regarding the chances of seeing 6-8 inches of snow Sunday-Monday. Yeah we’re in the 100 percent area:

Then with the snow out of the way, it is expected to get cold again. Temperatures should start falling Tuesday, with a reading of -5 by 5 p.m. that day. The Tuesday night low could dip to -19. Wednesday’s high temperature is forecast for -6, with a low temperature Wednesday night of -20. Any kind of wind would result in bone numbing — and potentially dangerous — wind chill.
