Reported by: Chief Meteorologist Joe Murgo

The frigid pattern continued today with low temperatures and a gusty wind. There were numerous snow showers this afternoon and these snow showers should diminish tonight; however, do be careful as there can be sudden bursts of snow as your are traveling. Additional accumulation should be minimal, but with temperatures well below freezing, and blowing snow, do be careful traveling as there can be slick spots on the roads. Temperatures tonight will be dropping into the lower single digits in the valleys and below zero in the higher terrain. Wind chills will be lower than that. Because of that the National Weather Service has a wind chill advisory in effect for most areas west of I-99 into Friday morning. Friday will be breezy and very cold but there should also be partial sunshine. Temperatures will only rise into the lower to middle teens with the wind still making it feel colder than that. The mercury may actually rise a little Friday night and then will pop into the 20s for the first time in a while on Saturday ahead of the next cold front. This arctic front will bring numerous snow showers and perhaps a heavier, blinding squall Saturday which can catch travelers off guard. The cold air will be a little reinforced Saturday night into Sunday and another disturbance will bring snow showers Sunday into Monday. Behind that disturbance, the arctic air will strengthen its grip on the region as we head into the middle of next week. The good news is that later next week, temperatures will return to near average with some sunshine.
