Expect about a 20 to 25-degree down swing in temperatures from Saturday to Sunday this weekend courtesy of very cold air blowing in from the northwest.
Saturday is expected to be almost spring-like with strong winds at times plus highs up close to 60-degrees with rain likely. There is also a chance of thunderstorms. The average high and low for this time of year in Campbell County is 45 and 27-degrees respectively. Saturday night’s dips to 32-degrees.
Sunday’s high struggles to make it to 33-degrees. Maybe 34. On top of those bitterly cold temps come low wind chills making for a very brisk day. The Wind Chill Index or “feels-like” temperatures will be in the single-digits to near zero. With Sunday night’s low of 11, Sunday qualifies as the coldest day and night of the season. So far.
Temperatures remain below freezing until Tuesday. As it looks from here, Tuesday will be partly sunny with a high of 45. (WLAF NEWS PUBLISHED – 01/16/2019-6AM)
