First Alert Forecast

Dense Fog Advisory

Areas of dense fog will be likely throughout the morning and afternoon where visibility on roads may drop below 1/4 mile at times. Temperatures today will hold near 32-35 degrees which should mitigate any icing issues on road ways.

This foggy pattern is expected to continue throughout the night through Friday morning until wind begins to increase out from the east Friday afternoon.

Weekend Storm System

We are highly confident in another winter storm this weekend, beginning Friday evening and continuing through Sunday morning. At this time it looks like a developing low pressure system will be in our vicinity and will bring enough moisture to begin with rain on Friday evening and change to snow from north to south overnight and Saturday morning, with snowfall continuing until early Sunday morning. This will all depend on how far north or south this low pressure system places itself. Please stay tuned all week as we continue to track this winter storm.

Winds are expected to accompany this storm and will result in blowing snow and drifting.

Regardless of the location of this low, we are expecting very cold temperatures throughout the weekend with temps reaching down into the single digits and wind chills in the negatives.

There is another chance for rain and snow Tuesday and Wednesday of next week.
