Snow ending today, cold temperatures remain

By  | 

(WYMT) - Our WYMT Severe Weather Alert Day continues today. A Winter Weather Advisory remains in effect until 7 a.m. as snow continues to fall across the mountains. We’ll get a couple days of dry weather before another round of snow arrives next week.

The snow will taper off and come to an end as we go through the morning hours. It looks like we will be mostly dry by about midday. Road crews are working hard to clear the streets, but be prepared for snow-covered roads if you are traveling today, especially on side roads.

The system that brought us the rain yesterday and the snow last night into this morning, also ushered in a pretty steep temperature drop last night, and we are going to stay cold all day today. Temperatures will top out in the lower 20s under cloudy skies.

Overnight, temperatures will fall into the single digits as our skies gradually clear. An occasional light breeze out of the north northeast could make it feel like near zero at times. Try to limit how long you are outside, but if you must go out, bundle up!

Sunday will be sunny thanks to a high pressure system moving into the region, but it will still be cold. Temperatures will only climb into the mid 20s despite plenty of sunshine, before falling into the mid teens Sunday night.

Extended Forecast
Our clouds will increase Sunday night into Monday as a low pressure system and its associated cold front make their way toward Kentucky, but our winds will also shift and bring warmer air up from the south. High temperatures will be in the upper 30s Monday afternoon under mostly cloudy skies.

A few flurries or sprinkles are possible during the day on Monday, but our next chance of accumulating snow arrives late Monday night into Tuesday as that low pressure system and cold front swing through the region. High temperatures will be in the upper teens to low 20s Tuesday with overnight lows in the single digits.

It is still a little too early to talk about exactly how much snow we expect, but it does look like we could see minor accumulations from this system. The WYMT Weather Team will put out our first call for snow totals tonight or Sunday morning.

Our weather will clear up for the second half of the week, and temperatures will steadily recover from the blast of cold air from that front. High temperatures will be in the upper teens to low 20s Wednesday, upper 20s to low 30s Thursday, and low 40s Friday.
