And so it begins. If the high pressure of holiday to-do items has you feeling a bit frayed rejoice, there is a low-pressure system on the way.
While current snow showers promise a dusting to an inch of accumulation this morning, a high wind warning is in effect from 5 p.m. this evening through 5 a.m. Friday where winds in the 30 – 40 mph range show a potential for gusts in the 60-70 mph range.
Coupled with increasing winds throughout the day are plummeting temperatures that bottom out in the teens with wind chills touching subzero by 7 a.m. Friday. While winds diminish throughout the day on Friday, the biting cold does not appear to be as forgiving as temperatures look to find the 20-degree mark late Friday evening.
I will plan on a follow up early this evening although there appears to be little wiggle room in regards to the current details and projections.
