Snow continues through the evening, overnight and even into our Tuesday morning. As our road temperatures fall this evening, we will likely see some icy patches develop. Wet roadways will lead to slippery roadways as water on the roads freezes tonight. Snow showers can also add a thin coating to the roads, making travel slick. Side roads could be snow covered at times. We won’t pick up much more in terms of accumulation, but an additional inch or two is possible, with more in the higher terrain.
Overnight lows drop into the mid 20s and winds remain gusty. Wind chills will be bitter in the teens tonight and out the door on Tuesday. We could even see wind chill values in the single digits on higher peaks.
Most of the snow should wrap up by midday on Tuesday, though cold air will hang around with cloud cover for the middle of the week. Highs will be stuck in the 30s for Tuesday and low 40s for Wednesday. We thankfully are looking much more quiet for this time frame though.
Temperatures will be closer to average in the mid 40s towards the end of the week. We look to stay dry through the work week and into the weekend where highs are back in the 50s by Sunday. Rain returns to kick off the work week.
Much of November featured temperatures that are below average, which has allowed us to feel almost like winter at times. For the most part though, our daytime and overnight temperatures have stayed above the freezing mark of 32 degrees and most of our precipitation has fallen as rain. Changes are in store once over the next few weeks as snow becomes a more regular occurrence. To get a general idea of amounts, our average snowfall for the month of December is 12.9 inches (We normally pick up just between 2 to 3 inches in November).
