Wind: South 14
Relative Humidity: 75
Good Evening! We are still tracking a potential winter storm to move into the area Monday into Tuesday. Still looks like rain, snow, and ice are all a possibility, with some possibly seeing some accumulations. Stay tuned to WDAZ for more updates.
Light snow has been moving through the area this afternoon, and some, especially along the US/Canada border, could see up to 2" through tonight. The sky will remain mostly cloudy tonight, and there could be a few sprinkles or flurries overnight. Low near 25*, with a south wind at 10-25 mph. Monday will be mostly cloudy, with rain and snow developing during the afternoon. High near 36*, with a east wind at 10-20 mph.
The light rain will transition to a mix of rain, freezing rain, sleet, and snow during Monday night, and eventually transition to all snow. Depending on when these transitions take place will determine how much snow we see. I will have more on this storm tonight at 5:30 and 10.

Differences Between the new and old systems
- Wind speed is now calculated for 5 feet off the ground. Wind speed was previously based on observations at 33 feet.
- The calm wind threshold was lowered to 3mph.
- A consistent standard for skin tissue resistance is now in use.
- Measurements are based on how wind affects the human face, typically the most exposed portion of the body.
- The table incorporates the theory that heat is lost from the body depending on its surroundings
- The sun's impact is not factored into the wind chill temperature formula.
