Cold, snow returns today

By Norwalk Reflector staff • Jan 24, 2019 at 6:00 AM

Beginning today, there is a chance of snow every day through Tuesday.

It will be chilly during that stretch, with highs in the teens and 20s and lows either in the single digits or lower teens.

It will be even colder early next week, as Tuesday night’s projected low is 2 and Wednesday’s high is 9.

AccuWeather meteorologists are monitoring the potential for a more significant and widespread snow event late this weekend and early next week.

While temperatures are forecast to rebound slightly but remain below normal ahead of this storm, a reinforcing wave of bitter cold will plunge southward in its wake early next week.

“This will be a longer-duration cold blast,” said AccuWeather Lead Long-Range Meteorologist Paul Pastelok.

The air with this wave may be even more frigid that what is poised to arrive late this week.

Pastelok anticipates temperatures, on average, to be 10 to 20 degrees below normal across the Midwest through the end of January, leading to increased heating demands.

Today, the sun will rise at 7:47:51 a.m. and set at 5:37:32 p.m.

On Friday, the sun will rise at 7:47:04 a.m. and set at 5:38:46 p.m.
