Overnight we saw a strong northwesterly wind blowing some snow on our way out of Lake Erie. That’s not unusual during the winter when “hawks” fly in from east-central Canada. It’s a visual image, but nothing more than an image captured by our radar and cameras, showing cold winds and continuing chills.
By midday, we should see winds diminish as a major Canadian peak settles over the Mid-Atlantic. But that high is also pulling the coldest air of this two-day winter feeling right to your doorstep. Today, we’re in the mid-20s, basically your average overnight low! And even if the wind is fading, it will still feel like teenagers over 20. But we’re not done with the wind yet.
Overnight, winds will turn from the south, and lighter air will begin to run up I-95. But with an overnight low of 19° and winds rising again, wind chill will be in the numbers. Ultimately, that mild air should take us to average daytime peaks in the mid-40s on Wednesday and Thursday before slamming back into the mid-30s on Friday. But two near-average days in January is a big deal. And we’ll take it!
Wear that mask. It will keep you warm and safe!
