Winter Weather cold forecast

It's a quiet weather pattern for the next 36 hours. Then, bitter cold arctic air hits Wednesday setting us up for a chance for snow on Thursday.

Before we get there, Tuesday's forecast isn't as cold. Winds shift back to the south at 10 mph, helping push temperatures back into the mid 40s. The sky will be partly cloudy for a dry, quiet day.

Wednesday turns windy with breezing southwest winds at 20-25 mph during the day. The sky will turn mostly cloudy but no precipitation as temperatures drop into the teens before Thursday morning.

Overall temps will stay frigid and below freezing for a total of 64 hours from Wednesday night late until Thursday midday.

On Thursday, we are watching for snowfall. A system coming from Texas could bring the first measurable snow of 2022, but there is still a tracking issue. This is due to a very split forecast showing two different paths that the storm could take. At the moment, it does look like light snow could accumulate on Thursday morning. The team will continue tracking the storm this week.
