Hot to Cold

Feb. 24, 2017: What a week we’ve had!

Last Friday kicked off a very warm stretch of weather, but that run ended Wednesday. We’ve been dropping about 15 degrees each day, with another potential 10 degree drop coming tomorrow as winter comes roaring back in.

Temperatures were very warm most of the week, but we’ve been in a free-fall over the last 2 days, losing 15° a day.

This afternoon we were sandwiched between two seasons: spring weather with severe thunderstorms was to our east over Indiana, with severe winter weather in the form of heavy snow and blizzards were over Minnesota, Iowa, and Wisconsin.

Severe storms were to our east during the afternoon of Feb. 24. Blizzard warnings were to our west the night before and through Friday.

Winter finally catches up with us tonight in the form of light snow.

While the accumulations should be light, dust off your winter driving skills and be ready for slushy roads at times tonight and tomorrow morning.

The snow should leave early tomorrow, but in its place comes strong winds. With highs only around 30 degrees, that means wind chill values in the teens.

We haven’t had to deal with those in what seems live forever, so dust off your winter jacket too.

Stay warm this weekend!

    The weather is always erratic, we should be responsible for improving the worse situations that are about to happen
