Historical blast of arctic air on the way to the area for Monday night

Published: Monday, January 6, 2014 at 10:47 AM.

A wind advisory is also in effect tonight through Monday afternoon for northwest winds of 15 to 25 mph in the wake of the front with gusts up to 35 mph possible.  With the brisk wind and dropping temperatures, we have issued a wind chill advisory for interior areas late tonight into Monday morning for wind chill values dropping as low as 6 to 10.  We also have a wind chill advisory in effect from Monday evening to Tuesday morning for values dropping to as low as zero to 7.  We do not issue advisory products that far out, but due to high confidence in this event and to heighten awareness as much as possible about the low wind chill values, our office in conjunction with some neighboring offices have taken the extraordinary step to issue this advisory.

This system may also bring some wintry precipitation to part of the area north of the Highway 84 corridor late tonight, probably in the form of snow flurries or light snow.  There will be no accumulation however as despite the cold air moving into the area, ground temperatures will quickly melt whatever falls.

Please feel free to contact us with any questions you may have.  Bundle up and stay warm!

Sincerely,

David Eversole
