Bitterly cold and windy today! Light snow likely tomorrow morning!


WEDNESDAY  DECEMBER 13, 2017  5:53 A.M.

Skies are mostly clear early on this Wednesday morning and temperatures have fallen to the upper teens in the Clifton area down to around 10 further inland, winds that are gusting to 30 mph or more out of the west is bringing wind chill values down to around zero.

Today will be a bitterly cold and windy day, temperatures will be hard pressed to reach the 30 degree mark and with winds gusting to 35 mph will make it feel very uncomfortable.

A weak Alberta clipper will likely give us some light snow tomorrow morning mainly falling between 5 and  10 a.m., accumulations will be less than an inch but it may affect tomorrow morning’s commute.

Dry and cold weather is expected  Thursday afternoon through Saturday.

Another weak disturbance may give us some precipitation Sunday night but at that time temperatures will moderate and that may cause the precipitation to be a mix of rain and snow.

Warmer than normal temperatures are expected Monday through the middle of next week./
