A Frigid Weekend

February 13, 2015 0 Comments

Just when it seems like perhaps we’ve turned the corner and now the worst of winter might be behind us, we find ourselves looking up at yet another blast of Arctic air for our weekend. While temperatures for Friday seems relatively close to what we would call “typical” or “seasonable” for this time of the year, we just have to look north of the Canadian border for more of those negative temperatures that we’ve come to expect every few weeks this winter. A powerful cold front is poised to sweep through the region around midnight tonight, producing a few flurries in the evening and then drawing in that colder air on some intense north winds through the night and especially for the first half of our Saturday.

The Arctic cold front will move through the area tonight. Skies will clear off through the course of the morning Saturday while north winds will be rather strong and brutally cold.

Winds just behind that front will occasionally reach 35 to 40 miles per hour through the midday hours of Saturday. Temperatures will take a nosedive in the meantime, making for a seriously nasty situation for anyone who has to venture out in the morning cold.

Temperatures will be seasonable for Friday, but much colder than normal for the weekend. Wind chills will be especially cold Saturday into early Sunday as winds will be especially strong at first and then temperatures themselves fall of the table heading in early Sunday.

Here a look at the forecast for those celebrating Valentine’s Day Saturday starting with a “lunch date” around the midday hour when winds will be still on the strong side. Winds will still be rather breezy for the early dinner just before sunset, but 15 to 20 miles per hour instead of 35 mile per hour gusts that will be experienced earlier in the day.

After a frigid Sunday morning that will feature bright sunshine with temperatures in the teens below zero, temperatures will climb into the single digits and lower teens above zero in the afternoon. A storm system from the west will then graze the area, bringing a little light snow to our area between the late afternoon and late evening hours, lingering through the early hours of Monday when an inch or two of snowfall accumulation may occur. From the current look of things in the longer term, we’re going to stick with that cold theme for at least another week with single digit and teen highs and sparse, light snow chances that don’t look to cause many issues for us.
