An Arctic air mass arriving Wednesday night will quickly bring
temperatures below freezing. Very strong north winds will bring
wind chills into the single digits and low teens Thursday morning... as temperatures fall into the lower to mid 20s.
An extended period of very cold temperatures into Saturday
morning will bring the potential for freezing pipes... and stress
livestock and outside animals. Highs are expected to remain below
freezing Thursday and drop into the lower and mid teens Thursday
night. Temperatures will struggle to rise above freezing Friday... before falling into mid teens again Saturday morning.
Widespread wintry precipitation is not expected. However a few
areas may see light freezing drizzle or snow flurries Wednesday
night. No accumulation is expected... but should be monitored for
updates as we get closer to the event.
