The last of the rain is exiting the area early Sunday morning. Then arctic air rushes in for the remainder of Sunday. This will send temps essentially into a free fall... dropping from the 40s to the 30s and then the 20s.

A Wind Advisory has been issued for the area Sunday for gusts up to 50 mph. This will start at 7 AM in the mountains and 11 AM for the metro, expiring as winds lax after sunset Sunday evening. 


The winds should help to dry a bulk of the rain and moisture off the roads from Saturday night's soaking rain, but ponding/standing water will turn icy as the arctic air pours in. Watch for icy spots on roads Sunday evening through Tuesday morning.

A Wind Chill Advisory is in effect as blustery winds and cold temperatures combine to drop wind chills below zero. Stay warm! Here are a few safety tips below.
