Overnight: A few flurries or snow showers are possible early, then clouds gradually break towards morning, Storm Center 7 Chief Meteorologist McCall Vrydaghs said.
Slick spots are possible as temperatures drop and light snow falls, and may be a factor into the morning.
Winds will increase and wind chills will drop. Overnight lows fall into the single digits with chills of 10 to 15 degrees below zero. This cold enough that skin exposed to these types of elements would be subject to frostbite in as little as 30 minutes. Limiting time outdoors is recommended. Be sure to wear several layers with winter hats, gloves or mittens and scarves.
