Many of you will remember the major ice and snow storm that hit the Big Country the first week of February about three years ago. While it's too early to say at this time, the storm coming in this weekend has the potential to be a major storm that causes stalled travel, downed power lines and heavy amounts of ice and snow. With cold Arctic air in place from now through Tuesday of next week, an upper level low will bring a good chance for snow and sleet, causing ice, starting Saturday night and continuing through Monday morning. A Winter Storm Watch is now in effect for Saturday night through Monday morning and a warning could be issued later this weekend. Temperatures should range between 28 and 32 on Saturday with only light freezing drizzle for the most part. Saturday night down to 26, Sunday's high 28, Sunday night 25, Monday 35 degrees. There definitely could be business and school delays or cancellations come Monday, so stay tuned to KRBC for updates, check our Facebook page and of course here on Bigcountryhomepage.com. The sunshine returns next Wednesay, highs near 50. Thanksgiving Day looks nice, sunny with middle to upper 50's. Be safe on the roads, don't travel if you don't have to !!
