Q2 Weather: Snow and very cold with risky travel

Light snow Saturday with dangerous wind chills New Year's Eve

THURSDAY: Partly cloudy and cold.

TUESDAY: Sunny and cold. This will cause wind chill temperatures to drop into the 20-30° below zero range.

Residents across the area should make preparations for an extended period of cold weather. The forecast calls for areas of light rain as temperatures fall below freezing Sunday night into Monday, which may transition to freezing rain and drizzle.

Clouds will roll back in tonight with another shot at some snow flurries close to sunrise Sunday.

Friday Night: Clear and dry. As sunrise on Saturday nears, a bit of light snow may develop across the area, especially for points west of the Lehigh Valley. Snow showers will come and go and additional accumulations of 1-3 inches will be possible.

Petersen said he spent several years after the Fiesta Bowl acting "like it didn't happen" when asked about the game . While the big bodies up front are stuffing the run, Washington's linebackers are every bit as fast and aggressive.

Some models even showed Tampa could see snow flurries late next week, Rodriguez said, although he was hesitant to predict exactly what weather will look like so far in advance. Otherwise, Saturday will feature slightly warmer temperatures as highs reach the upper 20s under rather cloudy skies when it's not snowing.

Another push of bitterly cold air will move into Wisconsin Friday night and linger through New Year's Day Monday.

The National Weather Service has issued a beach hazards statement and a small craft advisory in your Treasure Coast forecast for December 29, 2017. A tight pressure gradient will develop between the high and a storm system off the coast, so this will lead to a stiff northwest breeze kicking back up. What a way to ring in 2018...right?! Temperatures will remain mired in the upper 10s and low 20s with wind chills in the single digits.

For the rest of tonight, we'll find temperatures holding steady in the 30s.

Cold Arctic air that has been building over western Canada for weeks is now plunging into the northeast, bringing on this prolonged bout of frigid weather, said Dan Kottlowski, a senior meteorologist with AccuWeather. A low pressure system with an associated cold front passing through the Iowa and southern IL region will bring some more clouds to the area as the day goes on. The colder temperatures will lag behind the front by about 12 to 18 hours.
