A winter blast is headed in from the northwest this weekend and it brings some of our coldest and most blustery days of the winter season so far.

Morning temperatures on both Saturday and Sunday will be in the single digits.  However, wind chill values will be below zero most of the weekend.  The lowest wind chills we’ll experience this weekend will come on Saturday morning when it will feel like -10° to -15° due to strong northwesterly winds between 5 and 15 mph with some 20 mph gusts possible.

A few snow flurries/snow showers are possible on Saturday, but accumulations will be quite light, less than a half-inch.  A more significant snowfall will begin Sunday afternoon and continue into Monday.  As snow wraps up during the day Monday, we’ll have 1″-3″ of new snow on the ground.

Tonight: Mostly cloudy with scattered lake effect snow and gusty winds.  New accumulations will be a half-inch or less in most spots (higher amounts possible NW of Fort Wayne).
