Wind chill Advisory!

A Wind Chill Advisory is in affect from Saturday night through Monday morning. A strong arctic front will push through the area Saturday afternoon. As the front pushes through, winds behind the front will range from 20-40 mph through Monday morning. This will create dangerous wind chill readings. This is why the advisory was issued for the area. Take a look at the map below:

As you can see, I am expecting wind chills to be between -10 and -30 degrees. If you are going to be going or doing anything outside on Saturday, I would get it done in the morning, because when this front arrives, it will get cold!

Here is my temperature forecast around the area.

Highs Saturday before the front arrives will be in the mid to upper 20's. Lows Sunday morning will be between 0 and -5 degrees. Highs will likely only make it into the single digits on Sunday, then the really cold air arrives Sunday night and Monday morning. Lows Monday morning will range from -5 to -15 degrees! Now add that with 20-40 mph! Monday should warm up into the mid to upper teens.

Now with a potent arctic front coming through, you must think there is a chance of some precipitation. Well there is a chance of some snow showers out ahead of the front, probably between noon and 2:00 PM. It will be very light snow with maybe a dusting possible in some locations.

After this arctic blast, we turn our attention to Christmas eve. I see a strong possibility of a possible snowstorm Tuesday into Wednesday, I would 50% chance. Right now the models are showing accumulating snow, and I am agreeing, but I have no clue as to how much snow will fall, but I do think we will have a white Christmas as it takes 1 inch or more of snow depth. There is also a slight chance of some light snow on Christmas Day.
