More cold, little snow

There is potential for snow in Suffolk Tuesday evening as a cold front moves in.

Suffolk will see precipitation that will briefly change to snow, according to National Weather Service Wakefield meteorologist Eswar Iyer, but the snow won’t accumulate more than roughly half an inch.

“It does not look like a big deal at all, especially for Suffolk,” Iyer said. “Once the snow ends in the late evening, the temperature will drop into the 20s.”

While precipitation of any kind won’t last long, Iyer believes there is still a possibility for icy conditions on the road.

“There might be a few slick spots Tuesday night and Wednesday morning, but we are not anticipating much of an impact,” Iyer said.

The rest of the week will continue to see cold weather as a secondary arctic front comes through, and the temperatures will drop even further.

“Wednesday night temperatures will drop into the teens, and the wind chill values will be around 5 to 10 degrees,” Iyer said. “Thursday, the temperature will struggle to get to around 30 degrees, but we are expecting everything to slowly warm up.”
