WEATHER ALERT DAY: One more morning of frigid wind chills

Arctic Air Blast!

Bitterly cold temperatures have filtered in across Mid-Missouri thanks to a large arctic high pressure system centered to our northwest, blasting cold gusty winds through the region today. Temperatures managed to reach the single digits to low teens, but will drop to around zero tonight. A Wind Chill Advisory is in effect for Montgomery, Monroe, and Audrain counties through 8:00 Friday morning.

Synopsis

Arctic high pressure will slide southeast, allowing winds to drop significantly tonight. Clear skies and a widespread snow pack allows temperatures to tank overnight.

Timing

Frigid air sticks around through Friday morning, but sunshine and a wind shift back to the south will help temperatures rise back into the mid-20s for Valentine's Day.

Impacts/Totals

Snow amounts were fairly minor from yesterday, as a good portion of what was falling was melting as it did so. There could still be some isolated slick spots in parking lots and on sidewalks with the continued cold weather Friday morning.

The biggest overall impact will be the feels like temperatures as wind carries body heat away.
