The deep freeze

1 year ago Tuesday, January 28, 2014 5:18:47 PM CST January 28, 2014 Tuesday, January 28 2014 Jan 28, 2014 in Weather

While the storm has passed, very cold temperatures mean the icy hazards will be slow to diminish.

Wednesday will be just bitterly cold with morning wind chill values into the single digits as winds gust. After starting the day off with near record low readings in the upper teens and lower 20s, highs will barely recover into the upper 30s, despite plenty of sunshine. A large ridge of high pressure to our north that helped force this arctic air mass into the region will stay put. This means we'll stay with a northeasterly wind and keep clear overnight. The combination of the two will result in another biting bout of cold with lows plunging back into the 20s.

Be aware that, although no precipitation is expected, the slight and short-lived jump above freezing on Wednesday will lead to some PARTIAL melting. This means any wet spots leftover at night WILL refreeze into Thursday Morning with those frigid numbers. If you're back to work and school on Thursday, don't take that commute lightly, use caution.
