Polar air behind the mini storm

Just a brush with sleet, freezing rain and snow for the metro.

And its a good thing given the deep freeze that is following the winter storm system.

Temperatures will struggle to get above freezing Saturday with a deep freeze Sunday morning. Wind chill will make it feel dangerously cold without sufficient protection.

But the dry air and some sunshine combined with the DOT pre-treated roads should make travel/driving road conditions fine in most areas before long.

That also means minimal black ice concerns so work and school should be pretty normal Monday.

Much warmer weather warmer weather is not far off as you can see in the projections below. Normal temps return Tuesday then warmer than normal Wednesday through Friday.

Here is the Sunday weather map and some model projections for the low temperatures Sunday Morning. I reject the extreme lows as I think those models are wrong. But still, brrrrr

But never fear, this IS the South, the bane of snow lovers. So a big rebound is around the corner, and our next concern could be severe thunderstorms before any later return to winter weather longer term:
