Accumulating snow and brutally cold temperatures ahead

…First accumulating snowfall of season possible late Thursday into early Friday morning across the Tri-States…

For today, look for mostly sunny skies to continue across the Tri-States with high temperatures in the low to mid 45s expected.

Mainly clear skies are expected tonight before clouds begin to roll in Thursday ahead of our next weather-maker, which may also be our first shot at accumulating snow in the Tri-States.

A low-pressure system developing across the desert southwest will push into the region Thursday, bringing rain chances to the Tri-States initially.

We expect this to transition to a wintry mix before becoming all snow late Thursday into early Friday morning.

Current indications that up to an inch of snow is possible across the entire Tri-States. However, due to the warm soil temperatures, accumulations are expected to be minor and should primarily occur on grassy surfaces, vehicles, roofs, etc.

A few flurries or snow showers are possible early Friday before the precip comes to an end.

After that, a cold front will push through with a strong center of Canadian high pressure on its heels. Combined with the forecast coldest air of the season thus far, gusty winds may produce wind chills in the single digits early Saturday morning.

The Veterans Day weekend looks dry and cold. Another weather system may take aim on the Tri-States early next work week with rain and snow chances returning to the region.

More on this week’s snow chances, the cold air and next week’s storm system coming up on WGEM News at Noon.
