Sunday January 27 2019

Today brings a little warm up ahead of some showers. Snow this morning in the mountains will fade as it moves east, but could redevelop some rain showers in metro areas this afternoon. The main story is the part of the Polar Vortex diving south and it will impact us beginning Tuesday. That is when the arctic front arrives with snow and temps tank. Wednesday morning may be icy with light snow cover, but the coldest of the air will be with us Thursday morning.

Afternoon Highs

 

The Arctic Front

The timing appears to be Tuesday evening. We could get some rain showers only to quickly turn to a snow burst that will last a few hours.  This will spark legitimate Flash Freeze conditions. Anything wet will freeze as temps tank in a hurry while it is still snowing.

Temperatures 

It will be very cold after the front passes, and I expect many roads will be icy even though we only get 1 to 2 inches of snow. It will colder Thursday morning.
