Good Wednesday bloggers,

We are tracking two blasts of cold the next seven days.

Cold Blast #1: This will arrive tonight dropping temperatures from the 60s today to 20s by Thursday morning. Wind chill values will be in the single digits. We may see some drizzle, light sleet and flurries with this cold air rushing in. At this time we do not expect any impacts from the precipitation. The roads should be fine Thursday morning despite being rather cold.

Cold Blast #2: This cold blast is an Arctic blast, which means it is much more significant than the cold coming in tonight. It arrives Sunday and it will make it cold for most of next week. The coldest period looks to be Veteran's day and Tuesday. Highs on Monday will likely stay in the 20s with lows Tuesday around 10°! Wind chill values will likely be close to zero as well. The record low for November 12th is 6° set in 1911. So, it can happen this time of year, but wow! Will there be any snow with this cold? Right now it does not look like more than flurries or a period of very light snow with no accumulation. There is a slight chance for a bit more snow and is something we will watch closely.

Now, here is some good news. Today will be 60°-65°, Saturday will be around 60° and if the second front waits until Sunday evening, then Sunday will be in the low 60s.

Have great rest of your week.
