From the KX Storm Center:
We are looking at a short break from dangerously cold temps/chills, but not until after tonight. An Arctic air mass is parked over the Dakotas and temps have stayed below zero since Christmas Eve. Add in winds and chills have been even lower with wind chill warnings & advisories in effect for our area. This extremely cold air mass is not out of our area, yet.
There is a wind chill advisory in effect until Noon CST Wednesday for the entire state of ND. This advisory extends into northeast MT and across most of SD & MN.
Very cold wind chills are expected and can cause frostbite in as little as 30 minutes, to exposed skin. Chills will range from 25 to 40 below zero. Lowest chills will happen tonight, through early Wednesday morning.
The next few days will bring slightly warmer temperatures with more clouds and scattered snow as a developing system moves over the state. Tonight, clouds will gradually move over the state and by tomorrow, snow chances return. Scattered snow showers will move into Western ND, after Noon. Through the rest of tomorrow night, continued snow is in the forecast. The good news is that we are not looking at high totals. Many of us could see up to 1″ with areas of 1″-3″, possible. Friday & Saturday will bring more clouds, another chance of light snow and continued falling temperatures. By this weekend, dangerously low chills are forecast Friday night through Monday morning. It will warm up above zero degrees for high temperatures, by next week.
Through the next 7days, there will be a few chances for snow. But, we are not looking at severe weather or extreme winter weather outside of low temps Friday through Monday morning.
Tonight will bring gradually increasing clouds with another round of dangerously cold temps/chills. Lows in the -teens with a West/SE wind 2-12mph and chills in the -20’s & -30’s.
Wednesday, continued increasing clouds early with rising snow chances after Noon. Highs in the single digits with a few teens and a SE wind 5-15mph gusting up to 20mph. 30% chance of PM snow with chills climbing out of the -20’s and into the -teens.
Wednesday night, mostly cloudy with continued scattered snow and slightly higher temps. Lows near & below zero with a SE/NW wind 2-12mph gusting near 20mph. 60% chance of snow with chills below zero and in the -teens.
Thursday will bring a few more changes. Expect clearing skies, falling temps and winds becoming a little breezy at times. Highs near zero and in the single digits with a NW/West wind 5-15mph gusting near 20mph. Chills in the -teens & -20’s.
Thursday night will bring more clouds with a light breeze. Lows below zero and into the -teens for some with a West/North wind 2-10mph & chills in the -20’s.
