We woke up to heavy frost and temps in the 20s to lower 30s, but that is not the big story for late October. The big story is more snow for tonight and Thursday. There is a Winter Weather Advisory tonight and Thursday until 3pm. We are expecting 1-3” of snow tonight (higher amounts inland), and another 1-2” of snow on Thursday with highs in the mid 30s. Most of the area gets 2-3” of snow while some inland areas will get 4-5” of snow. Not only will it be snowy, but it will be windy with NW gusts to 35 mph. This will be heavy wet snow so drifting snow is not an issue. In fact, like Monday’s snow, the roads should just be wet since they are still warm.
Morning lows will be near freezing with wind chills in the lower 20s. The snow tapers off after 3pm so trick or treaters won’t have to battle the falling snow, but there will be a few inches on the grassy surfaces. In addition, it will be cold with strong winds and wind chills in the teens.
Friday starts off sunny, but clouds increase, and it will be cold and breezy with highs in the upper 30s. There is another chance for a light wintry mix Friday night into Saturday morning…no snow accumulation is expected. After Saturday morning flurries, Saturday is cloudy, breezy and cold with highs in the upper 30s. Sunday has more sun and we “warm” up into the lower 40s…the normal high is 55.
