Rowan weather: Still dangerously cold

The single-digit temperatures — it is 7 degrees at 8 a.m. — have us under a winter weather advisory until noon today, but we’ll reach a high of just 30 degrees.

Although we’ll see the sun, little melting is expected, so roads, parking lots and sidewalks will remain treacherous. Main roads and streets were plowed and are dry and passable, but side roads and streets are solid ice. A light wind from the south will blow about 5 mph.

Tonight will be partly cloudy and bitterly cold again, with a low of 15 degrees.

Tuesday will be partly sunny and warm to 40 degrees. A south southwest wind will blow at 5-7 mph in the afternoon.

But, we have a 20 percent chance of showers Tuesday night, with a low of 35.

Wednesday’s high will be 54, but we’ll have a 30 percent chance of showers throughout the day. That drops to 20 percent Wednesday night, with a low of 45.

And the heat wave starts Thursday, when we’ll be partly sunny with a high of 63! The low will be 48.

Friday will be almost 70 degrees — a high of 67 with partly sunny skies. Another 30 percent chance of showers moves in Friday night, with a low of 44.

Saturday also has a 30 percent chance of showers, with mostly cloudy skies and a high of 54. The same chance of showers continues Saturday night, with a low of 40.

And Sunday will be mostly cloudy and 58.
