WBOY STORMTRACKER 12 WEATHER SYNOPSIS:
WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY: Continues until 6:00 AM Wednesday for Pocahontas, Randolph & Webster Counties where morning snows will be ending. Untreated surfaces will still be slick with ice and snow pretty much everywhere today.
Wind chill values are down into the single digits above/below zero this morning. Wrap around moisture along the lingering comma-shape of the departing low pressure will result in lingering light snow showers lasting well into Wednesday afternoon, especially in the eastern mountains. But new snowfall will be negligible with maybe an additional inch along the highest ridgelines. Temperatures struggle into the mid to upper teens but wind chill values hold even colder.
Chilly but dry weather rules Thursday morning. Conditions turn slowly warmer from Thursday afternoon into the weekend as southwest winds develop along the western fringe of that departing high pressure system. Weekend high temperature will break into the 40s, 50s and even 60s by Sunday with a few light, disorganized rain showers.
Another stronger upper level disturbance will sweep across the area Monday into Tuesday of next week. That will bring widespread rain which will change to snow Monday night into Tuesday.
WEDNESDAY: Generally cloudy and cold with lingering light snows, mainly in the eastern mountains. High: 16. Low: 9.
THURSDAY: Cold and mainly clear in the morning, turning warmer and staying dry after lunch. High: 35. Low: 20.
FRIDAY: Mild and mostly dry with a sun/cloud mix. High: 43. Low: 33.
SATURDAY: Mild with a few sprinkles under variable cloudiness. High: 53. Low: 40.
SUNDAY: Above average temperatures with partly cloudy skies and a chance for rain. High: 62. Low: 42.
