Near flash freezing has led to areas of black ice on some roadways.  Secondary roads, sidewalks & parking lots are mostly affected as rainwater has frozen.  Also some creeks that were overflowing over some roadways early have receded, but the water has frozen in place.  Others still have water in swales that overflowed into county roads & has flash frozen.  Watch for some icy areas on some roads overnight to tomorrow morning.

A few flurries & snow showers are possible in some places.  A dusting is possible in a few localized areas as low temperatures drop well into the teens tonight with wind chills near 0.

Snow showers will pass tomorrow afternoon to tomorrow night.

Dusting/coating of snow is possible with a few slick spots. 

Bitter cold, blustery weather will send wind chills to -25 to -20 early Friday morning.  Afternoon highs Friday will only run 6-12, despite all of the sunshine.  Wind chills will run around -10.

Wave of some snow late Friday night-Saturday morning may drop 1" or less.

Another wave of snow is possible Sunday morning & again Sunday evening night. 

Each may dump minor accumulation.  Amounts are unclear as it appears one of these may have a band of enhanced snow of a few inches.  Whether that heavier band sets up here or not is unclear, but count on some snow to slicken things up a bit.

After some ice, rain & snow Monday-Monday night, brutal cold will roar in for early to mid-next week.  Wind chills may drop to -35 to -25.

I think lobes of intense cold will keep dropping in off & on (with snow at times) right to February 7, then a sudden, impressive thaw may commence with rain & 40s, 50s.  However, this will NOT last long as more lobes of bitterly cold air will follow with more snow.  This burst of mildness may only last 36 hours, but it will lead to a nice, big thaw.

Check out the projected wind chills next Wednesday morning!
