Tracking a couple more days of dangerous wind chills

TODAY: I'm tracking dangerous wind chills staying in the negative single digits and teens throughout MLK day, which is why today is an ABC 17 Stormtrack Weather Alert Day. Along with this, I'm tracking a round of light snow moving across central Missouri. This will enter throughout the afternoon hours and exit throughout the evening with totals around the I-70 corridor at a trace to 1/2". Since this will be a dry snow, expect snow drift on roadways and a decrease in visibility.

TONIGHT: I'm tracking wind chills dipping back down into the -20 to -25 degree range as air temperatures decline into the negative single digits. This is why an ABC 17 Stormtrack Weather Alert Day is in effect through the overnight hours into tomorrow morning. As snow exits, cloud cover will clear as well which will leave us with a sunny setup on Tuesday.

EXTENDED: I'm tracking another frigid morning Tuesday as air temperatures will be in the negative single digits and wind chills will be in the -20 to -25 degree range, hence why we are still in ABC 17 Stormtrack Weather Alert Day mode. The sunshine will help mid-MO reach the low teens for high temperatures on Tuesday, but the warmest temperatures come Wednesday. With more sunshine and warmer air, temperatures on Wednesday will climb all the way into the low 30s. Unfortunately, I'm tracking another cold front moving through Thursday that causes temperatures to plummet close to where we've been this past weekend. Along with this, I'm tracking dangerous wind chills making a return to end the week.
