An arctic blast will bring a mix of wintry weather to the region this morning through Christmas Day. The first impact could be a few slick spots this morning in any areas where the wind hasn’t been able to dry off roadways. Also, there is a small signal for a band of freezing rain to develop somewhere east of the I-65 corridor later this morning.
There’s a better chance for some minor snow accumulations this afternoon and early evening, again mainly east of I-65. By this evening, temperatures will crash into the lower to mid 20s…causing any remaining wet roadways to freeze. A Winter Weather Advisory is in effect from late this morning through Christmas mid morning, both for that snow potential as well as for the potential of black ice.
The other concern will be wind combined with those colder temperatures. Wind chills will drop into the teens this afternoon and then into the single digits late tonight and into most of Christmas Day.
