NAM model simulated radar Tuesday night.

A strong cold front with low pressure will come in. Snow showers are possible in the morning, but impactful accumulation appears unlikely at this time.

A weak disturbance passes through the area today, bringing a chance of light snow or flurries in the afternoon. Temperatures should recover into the 40s tomorrow once the precipitation clears the region.

The main impacts will be gusty winds up to 35 miles per hour, slick roads and reduced visibility for the morning commute, and below-freezing temperatures.

A dry cold front will bring the FOX8 viewing area clouds on Sunday afternoon with highs for the day around 50 degrees. Freezing rain is not going to be a concern though. The drive to work Wednesday morning could be a little tricky.

How disruptive this event ends up will depend on how quickly temperatures fall, how heavy the snow is, and the timing of snowfall. This looks to be at least the coldest air we've had this season and possibly the coldest air we've had in years!

A light batch of snow moved across North Alabama and South Tennessee this morning, leaving a light dusting of snow behind for some of us!

Most models shut off the snow pretty quickly, between about 8 p.m. and 11 p.m.

Environment Canada is calling for an overnight low of -15 and a wind chill of -23 Friday night.

Highs on Wednesday should be only around 30, and could struggle to reach 20 on Thursday when the core of the arctic blast arrives. Northwest winds gusting over 35 miles per hour on the leading edge of an arctic-source high pressure air mass will produce unsafe wind chills to -30 degrees or colder later Thursday night into Friday morning across northeastern IL immediately to the north and west of Chicago.

Forecast high and low temperatures next 10 days in Washington from average of computer models. Snow showers are possible as early as midnight Monday into Tuesday.

But don't get use to the mild weather.
