Teachman’s Take: Brutal Cold Lingers

*** Wind Chill Advisory In Effect Until Noon Sunday ***

After picking up 2″ of snow yesterday (by the way, 12/17 was officially the 4th snowiest in 129 years!), with light winds and clear skies, temps are way below zero.  Kansas City fell to -9 this morning and it will be a struggle for temps to warm this afternoon.

We do have a Wind Chill Advisory in effect until noon for wind chills near -20.  This afternoon with sunshiny skies, it will only get up to 10 with wind chills between 0 and -7.

Advisory is for the entire Storm Track 5 area until noon:

Hour by hour look at today:

Overnight, it will be clear and bitter again.  Lows will dip to -1.  Temperatures will start to warm as the work week goes on.  Mostly sunny skies Monday and Tuesday.  Highs on Monday will be in the 20s.  We’ll finally get above freezing on Tuesday at 34.  There’s a weak, but fast moving system Wednesday night and Thursday morning.  I can see this system producing a quick burst of flurries or light snow.  It doesn’t have much moisture by the looks of it.

Heading into the weekend and Christmas — if trends continue to look the way they do right now, we could have a White Christmas.  A lot will depend on the track of the system as we’ll be on the northern edge of it.  Stay tuned for further weather updates from the Storm Track 5 weather team.

Take care,

Teach
