Heavy rain, winds, snow, icy roads in the Heartland Saturday
(KFVS) - A First Alert Action Day was issued for today, Saturday, Jan. 19 due to the impact expected from a very strong storm system moving into the area.
A winter weather warning was issued for several counties until midnight.
Winter weather advisory still holds for all other counties.
Bands of heavy continue to move across the Heartland, creating hazardous road conditions. These bands will continue to move eastward through the afternoon and late tonight.
Many areas have ice and snow covering surfaces which will freeze tonight causing slick spots on roads to form. Even if roads are cleared, they are likely not treated which can still have black ice to form on them.
Once the snow moves out tonight, we will see mostly to partly cloudy skies with low temperatures ranging from the low to upper teens.
Tomorrow morning, strong northwesterly winds will be present causing feel-like temperatures to be in the single digits to low double digits.
However, we could be dealing with wind gusts as strong as 30 miles per hour which will make temperatures feel like the 10s through the afternoon.
We will stay dry for few days, but we are keeping an eye on another wintry system that looks to move in Tuesday into Wednesday of next week.
