Video: Arctic blast returns midweek ahead of Saturday storm



Thank you for watching. I’m meteorologist, Jacqueline Thomas, going through this week, a few things we keep our eyes on first, a blast of cold air that’s going to linger through the middle of the week, then a storm as we head into the weekend, a few flurries on Friday before a potentially major impact from a northeast as we head into the weekend. So what does this storm look like at this point? Well, when it comes to potential impacts, we’re talking heavy snow, slippery shifts, high gusty winds, and even coastal issues in the air for this storm system. If everything falls into place, these would all be significant impacts for this storm. Just because of how strong it might be. Coastal concerns include gusty winds, but also the potential for coastal flooding for us to see those astronomical high tides as we head into Saturday morning and Saturday evening. And so with these coastal flooding and the typical coastal concerns that we get with these big storms will be an issue. As we head into Friday we have an initial front passing through and that will trigger the possibility of a few flurries ahead of the bigger storm we are watching for the weekend which is developing and likely heading north -is along the coast as we go on Saturday. And so it could bring snowfall throughout the first half of the weekend, Saturday morning afternoon and evening. We’ll be keeping an eye on that in terms of timing, but also impacts because if that trajectory moves further inland or further offshore, that will also have an effect on what we get out of this storm. Such large snow totals, a possibility. Certainly gusty winds will all be factors here. There might be some power outage issues as well as we head into Saturday. We will therefore keep an eye on this lead. But it looks like he’s moving out for Sunday. So the second half of the weekend will be much better if you have to travel. So here are the two kinds of options. It brings a track closer to the shoreline and it will cause these large impacts of heavy snow across much of the state that coastal flooding is about or if it takes a track further east, like what number two shows here. If it’s a little further out, that means it’s going to be more of a grazing type of impact where we’re sort of hanging on the edge of the storm system rather than being right near the center of it. this. We will therefore be keeping an eye on how this tracks and forms over the next few days as there is still time before this system develops. So stay tuned for these updates. In the meantime we saw a persistent snow shower or flurry in the mountains throughout the afternoon, then tonight we are talking about the return of cold temperatures, we are back below zero north , single digit south to low teens under mostly clear skies on Wednesday, we’re hanging on to those clear conditions a good amount of sunshine all day tomorrow, but it’s just going to be cold single digit highs and lows. teenagers with a few places to the south and east approaching that 20 degree mark as we head into Wednesday night and Thursday that’s when you’re really going to feel the arctic air temperatures dropping below zero for most of the state. We could be looking at teens to twenty below zero for air temperatures in the north early Thursday morning and into Wednesday and Wednesday evening. We’re also going to talk a bit about that wind chill factor coming back. So yes, the freezing cold returns mid-week. It comes with this son and all eyes are on the impacts as we head into the weekend. It looks calmer beyond this system for the start of next week.

Cold days and frosty nights lie ahead as we continue to track a potentially significant northeast for Saturday. will be the coldest day of the week with highs only in the single digits and in the teens. Almost everyone falls below zero Wednesday evening through Thursday morning, except for the coastline. Thursday will be sunny with highs in the 20s. Mostly cloudy with light snow showers Friday before a potentially high impact snowstorm Saturday. It would be an all day storm with possibly heavy snowfall and gusty winds. Stay updated as we continue to track this throughout the week.
