Slick morning commute with dangerously cold temps 2/22/2022

 

We are waking up to bitter cold wind chill values around -30 to -15 degrees, snow flurries and strong wind gusts. The flurries are accumulating on grassy surfaces and some roadways so travel impacts are looking very likely through the morning. There could be a few slick spots and strong wind gusts around 30 to 40 mph will tug at your car, so use caution while driving. Visibility is also below 5 miles across southeast NE thanks to blowing snow and this will make it difficult to see during your commute. I also recommend adding some extra time to your morning routine to warm up your car and grab some extra layers!

You will want all of your heavy winter gear into the afternoon and evening today as high temperatures will only reach the low teens for most with wind chill values hovering at or below zero. Snow flurries push out around noon and then we are left with dry conditions and maybe even a bit of sunshine.

Temperatures plunge even more overnight, with actual air temperatures below zero and wind chill values near -30 degrees around southeast NE. A Wind Chill Advisory will go into effect at 6 PM today and will remain in effect through noon tomorrow as a result of the cold. High temperatures remain in the teens the next several days with the potential for more wind chill advisories the next few mornings. Accumulating snow chances on Thursday are also looking a bit more likely. We will have more details on the next round of snow later today.
