It's still cold

Snowblowers got a workout
Tuesday after about 3 inches
of snow fell Monday night.
They might be needed Friday, 
too, after light snow and high
winds Thursday afternoon 
could undo Tuesday's work.

Area residents may want to keep their snowblowers warmed up and shovels handy, because the harsh wintry weather will continue today and tonight, according to the National Weather Service.

Only another inch or two of snow is expected today, but winds gusting as high as 35 mph will cause blowing, drifting and reduced visibility.

The wind chill factor is expected to be 15 to 25 below zero Thursday night. And the cold is expected to continue through Saturday morning, with wind chills dipping to 30 below overnight Friday.

Temperatures are expected to rise into the 20s Sunday, just enough so snow Sunday could turn to freezing rain Monday morning.

NWS officials also warn residents near rivers that conditions are favorable for the development of ice jams.
