Winter Weather Advisory issued for Northern Panhandle

Posted December 31, 2017

A winter weather advisory is in effect from 10 a.m. until 10 p.m. today.

Wind chills to -6º early Saturday morning continue to fall to -15º during the afternoon. Higher elevations could see 1' - 4' feet of snow.

The heaviest band of snow as of Thursday evening is forecasted to go right through the heart of the Local 4 and Fox 18 area as it moves through the metro area and adjacent to the 1-80 corridor. The Advisory for Lake-Newaygo-Ottawa- Counties runs until noon for mainly light snow and slippery roads. "Locally some spots could see closer to 5".

Planning on going to the Patriots game Sunday afternoon? Temperatures will be in the teens by the 1 p.m. kickoff, and we'll have a brisk breeze out of the northwest nearing 20 miles per hour, making for wind chills near zero. A high temperature of 25 degrees was recorded at Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport, which is much lower than the average of 44 degrees. BWI also tied a record low of 10 degrees from 1950. For the first day of the new year, we'll barely be above 0 once again. Wishing everyone a happy and healthy New Year.
