No doubt about it: The winter of 2013-14 is the winter that keeps on giving.
More Arctic air in the aftermath of Wednesday’s snow is overspreading the area, and Friday will start with actual temperatures averaging around -4, but wind chills between -15 and -25, which is why the National Weather Service has issued a Wind Chill Advisory from midnight Friday through 11 a.m.
Skies will vary from partly cloudy to mostly sunny, with highs in the mid-teens and wind chills between zero and -10 during the afternoon. It's shaping up to be a cold but great start for the Meridian Winter Blast. Come on downtown and have some fun, and remember that there are warming stations and fire pits to roast marshmallows, so there are plenty of ways to keep warm.
Becoming cloudy on Saturday with a chance for some light snow by late afternoon that will continue through Saturday night. Highs in the upper teens.
If you have Saturday evening plans (like me -- I’ll be at the Pistons game), I’d plan on at least the possibility of snow impacting your plans. This isn’t a big storm -- at this point I expect an inch or 2 -- but it could slicken up the roads.
Scattered light snow showers are still possible on Sunday, with highs in the low 20s.
We then settle things down weather-wise for next Monday through Wednesday, but it’s still going to be very cold. Monday should have a low around 3 and a high around 17. We’ll then be back below zero Tuesday and Wednesday mornings, with highs Tuesday around 15, and highs Wednesday around 22.
With a bit of luck, we may see temps back into the upper 20s on Thursday, but there’s a chance for more light snow.
