Damaging Wind To Hit Wednesday Afternoon And Night, More Snow Friday

Damaging Wind To Hit Wednesday Afternoon And Night, More Snow Friday

We could get a glimpse of the sun again on Thursday but there's still snow and negative temperatures expected at night. The snow will melt quickly with afternoon sunshine and highs in the mid-40s. Gusty northwest winds will make things feel even colder.

Tomorrow will be just a little warmer, but there will be more clouds developing as well as a chance of snow. Minor ice accumulations are also possible.

Environment Canada has now issued a wind warning for Peterborough, Kawartha Lakes, and Northumberland, with wind gusts up to 90km/h developing on Wednesday, which may cause power outages and damage to buildings.

NY woke up to an April snowstorm, with about 5 inches (13 centimeters) of snow expected to produce slushy streets and a tough morning commute before the precipitation starts to wrap up about 11 a.m.

It's been a cold and damp morning, but a fairly safe one for the most part.

Saturday night: Dry, but any wet surface will turn to ice with temperatures dropping into the 20s. Stay tuned for details!

For now, it looks like we'll be ok.

No snow emergency has been declared for Madison, and the city Streets Division has not said how much of a salting/plowing operation will be needed. After a rebound in temperatures to the mid 40s on Saturday, rain and snow is expected to return on Sunday, with highs in the upper 40s-still below normal for this time of year. However, a storm will pass off the coast to the south of New England. Colder air moves in a bit sooner to our north and west, so that's going to switch it to snow quicker of course.

There is a storm system approaching that will have an impact on the Rockies' home opener Friday.

Forecasters said another 1-2 inches could fall in the Helena area Monday night and into Tuesday.
