February 7, 5:10 PM Weather Forecast Update: Arctic Air Roaring In.....Tracking Wind Chills to -13 & Snowy, Icy Pattern Ahead

Carroll County Intersection

As the cold is laid down, snowy, icy pattern will get underway.

The Arctic front continues to roll eastward, now in our far eastern fringe of counties with a gusty line of showers.  Winds are howling along & behind the front to near 50 mph right now.

Wind Advisory is up for the entire viewing area until early tomorrow morning.

Areas of showers & drizzle are falling for a while behind it.  A brief period of patchy freezing drizzle & flurries is possible this evening as this precipitation exits. 

Any icing would be very light, but still watch for icy spots.  Also watch for flash freezing of standing water on secondary roads, parking lots & sidewalks regardless.  Remember bridges & overpasses freeze up first.

Winds will howl up to 50 mph at times this evening & 30-40 mph overnight (from the west) as temperatures drop to 8-14 with wind chills as low as -13.

It may be getting much colder, but at least we have some bright, mostly sunny weather ahead for a couple of days.  Clouds will begin to increase later Saturday & especially Saturday night.

We lay down a 1-3" mantle of snow Sunday & the ice & snow systems keep coming next week to as late as February 24.

We may have as many as 5 winter weather systems with ice &/or snow accumulation February 10-24.

It is a good pattern for winter storms for us.

Trends point to a quick flash spring again around February 26-28 where all of the snow & ice melt quickly with rain & storms (& flooding risk).  Temperatures then look to go back to a cold, snowy, icy start to March.  This cold pattern may hang until we see more sustained spring warmth around & after March 12.

In fact, I think we could be on a streak of above normal temperatures for a while after the 12th after a mass majority of the days below normal for much of February & early March.
