Extreme wind chills and travel issues today!

WIND CHILL WARNING in effect through Tuesday where our wind chills will be in the -15° to -30° range. This could lead to hypothermia or frostbite if outside for a long period of time. Also take precautions with your pipes as these could burst.

Most of us seeing snow on the ground in which should stay there through the day due to the cold air sticking around. Roads don't appear to have much snow on them, but don't let it fool you. Ice has already formed, which is what you will be driving on in most cases. We start off in the single digits before dropping to -2° to 3° this afternoon. Winds will be strong leading to those dangerous wind chills. The main snow has moved out, but a few snow showers will be seen today as well with very little accumulation expected if any at all.

The wind chills remain the story tonight and into tomorrow due to our temperatures moving below zero tonight and tomorrow morning. Roads should be better, but still expect some slick spots. Highs on Tuesday in the single digits and teens with sunshine returning.

Heading toward the end of the work week we are looking at more unsettled weather, but nothing to write home about. The good news is temperatures will be MUCH warmer than what we are experiencing now.

Stay safe out there!

Meteorologist Micah Harris
