The National Weather Service has issued a WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY for Monday afternoon through Tuesday morning. Be careful if you must travel across the plateau during this period of time. As temperatures continue falling, snow will begin accumulating. Total snowfall accumulations of 1-2 inches are expected area-wide. I would expect conditions to begin deteriorating by 3:00 pm Monday.
In addition to the wintry weather, gusty winds will make for bitter cold wind chill factors on Monday. Make sure you bundle up good if you’re heading out. Temps will likely feel like the teens by Monday afternoon!
Before the wintry weather moves in, we’ll see rain Sunday night. Rainfall totals could be in the 1-2 inch range across the plateau. Winds will increase during the night, as well. Secure any loose objects before sunset Sunday, including any holiday decorations you have outside.
As we all know, things can change with winter weather forecasting around here. Stay tuned for all the latest right here!
