It's a very COLD and WINDY weekend! Behind the arctic front that pushed through Saturday morning, we're seeing the frigid conditions.
Overnight, actual temperatures will push record lows as we drop below zero in many locations. This will be accompanied by very windy conditions, which will push wind chills to 20 and possibly even 30 degrees below zero. Expect partly cloudy skies.
We'll see plenty of sunshine Sunday for Valentine's Day, but it won't do much to warm us up. While it's nothing to cancel plans over, do bundle up if you will be outdoors, especially in the early morning when it will be dangerously cold. It doesn't take long for the cold to cause damage to exposed skin. Winds won't be as strong Sunday, but high temperatures will still only be in the teens with lows Sunday night falling into the single digits.
Monday won't be as cold, but it will still be below average as highs top out in the upper 20s. The skies will be cloudy and by day's end, a period of snow is possible thanks to a storm system that will affect us through Tuesday. At this point, accumulations of 1-3" are possible Monday night before the temperatures rise and snow transitions into a period of ice before changing over to rain for Tuesday. With this, there is the potential for some flooding concerns. Continue to stay tuned over the weekend for the very latest.
