Good Wednesday Evening,
DENSE FOG ADVISORY HAS BEEN ISSUE FOR PARTS OF OUR AREA UNTIL 9am THURSDAY:
Under mostly clear skies, with little to no wind, patchy dense fog has formed this evening, and we will continue to see visibilities dropping below a mile in many locations overnight and into morning. Dense fog advisories have already been issued for Delaware, Hardin, Logan, Madison, and Union counties. Temps will fall into the lower/mid single digits to mid teens overnight.
Thursday evening the next weather maker will push into our area, and this may bring some wet snow on the leading edge, along with wet snow north. This will transition to rain showers as warmer air aloft nudges in for a period. The temps may tick up a degree or two after sunset into the upper 30s.
Rain showers will generally taper off overnight into early Friday morning, possibly ending with some light snow showers on the very backside of the system. Temps on Friday will slowly fall through the day as colder air slips in. Our highs will likely occur around midnight in the mid 30s, fall to the upper 20s by morning and keep falling to the lower 20s during the day.
Saturday will see a brief break, with mixed sun and clouds, with temps at least 10 off the norm in the upper 20s. Saturday night clouds will thicken up and snow showers will move in with some more arctic air for Sunday. Snow showers will continue into Sunday morning with lows in the low to mid teens.
We should only warm into the upper teens on Sunday with some low 20s south. It will be breezy and cloudy making it feel even colder. Wind chills may stay in the single digits for the bulk of the day on Sunday. Sunday night wind chills will continue to fall as the winds will not be terrible, but the temps will not be nice.
Overnight we will have most of our area in the single digits to start Monday morning with some locations approaching zero before the wind. This will yield below zero wind chills, for Monday morning. At this point it still appears in the negative teens for chills. This will mark the coldest morning in nearly 2 years.
Monday will only recover to the upper teens with partly sunny skies. Tuesday snow showers return to our area, and given that it will be cold, there could be some light accumulations with this. Highs on Tuesday will be in the low to mid 20s. Wednesday scattered flurries, especially south and southeast will be possible with highs in the middle 20s.
