Light Snow, Then Bitter Cold to Hit Area



    NBC10 First Alert Weather: Snow Showers

    Snow is expected to move into parts of our area Thursday afternoon. Meteorologist Bill Henley is tracking the scattered showers and the bitter blast that will move following the snow. (Published Thursday, Feb. 12, 2015)

    Get ready to bundle up over the next few days. We’re in for bitter cold with wind chills below zero.

    Before the cold, a system will bring in light snow Thursday. We should see very little accumulation, if any at all, as well as temperatures in the mid to upper 30’s. After the snow clears out Thursday night, the deep freeze begins. By the time you wake up Friday, frigid wind chills will make temperatures feel like below zero in most parts of the region.
