Holiday weekend forecast (12/23/22)
We had a some decent snowfall totals (above) Thursday night into early Friday. 4.0″ in Marion and Carbondale!
A Wind Chill Advisory is in place through the first half of the day Saturday. Temperatures will be in the single digits through the early morning hours and with a gusty north wind at 10 to 25 mph, the wind chill will be in the -10 to -25 degree range. Frostbite can happen to exposed skin in less than 30 minutes in wind chill like this.
It’ll be a cold but sunny day on Christmas Eve with highs in the lower 20s. Much of the same is expected for most of Christmas Day, but a frontal boundary will move through in the evening hours giving us a chance for some light snow late Sunday into early Monday. Less than an inch of snow is expected, but more may fall to our north.
On Monday, after the snow moves out, we’ll see partly cloudy skies and highs getting back to around the freezing mark.
After we get past Monday, we continue to warm up on Tuesday, but REALLY warm up Wednesday into Thursday and Friday. Highs will try for the lower and middle 50s!
