...HAZARDOUS TRAVEL AND BITTERLY COLD WIND CHILLS THIS MORNING...
In the wake of yesterday`s snow storm, bitterly cold Arctic air
has plunged into the area on strong gusty northerly winds. This
will have several consequences through your Sunday morning.
First, as temperatures continue to drop into the upper teens and
lower 20s, the combination of the cold temperatures and gusty
winds will make it feel much colder. Wind chill readings will
be in the single digits through much of the morning.
Secondly, the gusty winds will result in areas of blowing snow
that may temporarily reduce visibility. This is especially true in
wide open country.
Finally, travel will remain hazardous through the morning hours.
This includes secondary roads, bridges, and overpasses, which
remain snow and ice covered in many areas. Even on some of the
primary thoroughfares that may have been cleared overnight,
residual moisture could freeze into a layer of black ice.
Travel is strongly discouraged this morning. If you must venture
out, dress accordingly, take along an emergency supply kit, and
have a plan of action in case your vehicle slides off the road or
you become stranded.
