January 8th, 2020 weather forecast; Snow squalls possible in the afternoon

Local News

(Wednesday January 8th 2020) A cold front brings bursts of snow and knocks our temperatures down Wednesday.

Wind chill temperatures are not far from zero degree the next couple of days.   

There’s a cold front coming through Wednesday.

This will bring the threat of snow showers, which could be in the form of snow squall Wednesday afternoon.

Be on alert for whiteout conditions due to heavy snow and gusty winds.

A coating to an inch or two of accumulation is possible.

The cold front also knocks the temperatures down from the 30s in the morning to the teens by the evening.

When you combine that with a very blustery west wind, the wind chill is expected to hover around zero degrees Wednesday night and Thursday morning.

High pressure builds in Thursday and keeps things quiet.

A warm up and more rain is expected for the end of the week and the start of the weekend. We have to watch for the threat of maybe an icy mix Saturday. Stay tuned for more information as we analyze new data this week.
