Plunging temperatures, snow, and flash freeze possible Tuesday evening in Washington region

January is not messin' around anymore

Once snow moves out, expect mostly cloudy skies through the rest of the day with temperatures slowly climbing.

The National Weather Service (NWS) forecasted that the chill would last through the weekend in the upper Midwest - but "dangerously cold" temperatures are expected next week, with scattered heavy snow and strong winds. By Saturday evening, another piece of energy moves through with a period of light snow Saturday night. Up to five inches of snow could fall between Thursday and Friday afternoon. This transition should begin between 10 p.m. and midnight for the Shoals.

The best chance for accumulating snow will be along and west of the Blue Ridge Parkway, though we don't anticipate a major winter storm.

This Cold Warning will remain in effect until the low temperature for the day is projected to be above -15°C.

Thursday will be a sunny but cold day with lows in the teens and highs in the lower-30s. Gusty winds both Wednesday and Thursday will create risky wind chills near 20 below zero by Thursday morning!

It stays cold this weekend and then another snow system impacts our area late Sunday night into Monday.

In that same span, the wind chill can reach as low as minus 40 going into Wednesday morning and looks to say minus 20 and below throughout, the NWS said.

A Wind Chill Advisory (light-green shading on map below) for risky wind chills 20 to 30-below zero is in effect for close-in Chicago and south of Interstate-80 Thursday night into Friday morning.
