After a snow filled start to the work week, we are finally seeing some drier air over our viewing area.. With that being said, there could still be some slick spots out there on the roads. Especially if there is any moisture or snow leftover on the roads. Could even experience some black ice this morning with temperatures starting in the upper 20s/lower 30s. A very cold start, so make sure you bundle up this morning.
As we go into the afternoon, we will finally get some sunshine. We will be battling a few clouds with a passing upper-level disturbance, with temperatures only in the low/mid 40s. Winds will be quite gusty this afternoon, mainly along the eastern slopes. Sustained winds will be between 10-20 mph, with gust pushing 50 mph in some spots. Keep this in mind during any travels on the roads today. This could also lead to power outages as well. If you have any holiday decorations outside, it is a good time to strap those down as well.
