Slick spots melting in time for more light snow, extreme cold

Friday's brief warmup should finish off any slick spots across the area after late sunshine helped to melt a lot of those away Thursday.

The number of slick spots diminished once the sun came out by mid-afternoon.

The slickness came after light snowfall on New Year's Day, with less than two inches falling across Lyon and surrounding counties. Additional light snow and extremely cold air is possible by Saturday night into early next week, according to WIBW-TV meteorologist Drew Switzer. He says wind chills near -20 Sunday night into Monday morning represent the coldest air residents have seen in a long time.

One to two inches of snow are possible across the area in addition to the extremely cold wind chills.

Switzer suggests you make preparations now. If you have to be outside, especially Sunday and Monday, make sure you are bundled up because of the dangers of frostbite.
