A Blustery Day with Snow Flurries

Posted on: 2:49 pm, December 29, 2012, by , updated on: 02:50pm, December 29, 2012

Saturday’s weather certainly hasn’t made outdoor activities a comfortable endeavor. and with temperatures in the mid to lower 30′s and winds gusting over 20mph making it feel like it’s in the 20′s, even venturing outside hasn’t been a very inviting prospect.

Scattered snow flurries are contributing to the wintry feeling around the area. Most temperature reading are above freezing, so major accumulations aren’t in the forecast, but there is a possibility of a dusting on elevated surfaces in the lower elevations and on the roofs and grassy surfaces in the higher terrain. Check out this picture from Ben Smith of light accumulations on a rooftop on Brindlee Mountain in Marshall County!

ARMOR is picking up the light flurries, mixed with some some small rain drops and ice pellets. No heavy precipitation will be seen tonight and what little we are seeing will taper after midnight.

ARMOR radar at 2:15PM, Saturday.

If you’re heading out tonight, prepare for a frigid evening with wind chills in the 20′s and winds of 10 to 20mph. Skies will try to clear tonight and the winds will ease gradually, allowing temperatures to plummet into the mid to lower 20′s and setting the stage for a bitter start to Sunday.

More rain is in our near future. For details on how your New Year’s plans may be affected, check out WHNT’s forecast page.
