If you’re getting ready to fill your pool for the season … not so fast. The National Weather Service is calling for wind chill values on Friday morning to drop to as low as zero degrees to five degrees below zero. Light snow is expected Friday night into Saturday morning with accumulations expected of an inch or less.

The NWS says a prolonged winter storm appears to affect our area from early Sunday morning through Monday afternoon. Further forecast specifics will be determined in the coming days. However, confidence is increasing that a mix of snow and ice will occur, with significant accumulations of wintry precipitation possible.

Monday the forecast calls for snow, freezing rain, and sleet with a high near 25. The chance of precipitation is 100 percent. Monday night is expected to be mostly cloudy, with a low around 8. Tuesday should be partly sunny, with a high near 28. Tuesday night it will again be mostly cloudy, with a low around 7. Wednesday mostly sunny, with a high near 31.
