Update on the Arctic Blast (11:50pm)

Posted: Updated:
Toledo, OH -

 

No major changes to the current forecast.  Temperatures have leveled off a bit this evening, but we still have a chance to come close to breaking or tying Toledo's all-time record low temperature (for any day of the year) is -20 set on January 21, 1984.  The forecast calls for a low of -19 overnight.  It'll be close...

A ***WIND CHILL WARNING*** remains in effect for the entire area through Wednesday morning.  Wind chills tonight/tomorrow morning will drop into the -40 to -45 degree range.  The wind chill will slowly rise into the -20 to -30 degree range tomorrow evening.  Wednesday morning wind chill will still be quite low in the -15 to -5 degree range, but will improve to 0 to +5 in the afternoon.

Our westerly winds will continue to range from 20-30 mph tonight and Tuesday with occasional gusts up to 40 mph.  This will cause substantial blowing and drifting of the snow on the ground.  Please expect rough travel conditions over the next couple of days.

Dry tonight with the low in the teens below zero.  Dry tomorrow, but bitterly cold, with an actual high of only -1.  Back in the teens on Wednesday and into the 20s for Thursday.  We'll break into the 30s on Friday and for the weekend.

-Chief Meteorologist Jay Berschback
