Don't let the bright sunshine that has followed the latest winter storm to sweep through the area fool you.

Conditions are expected to be much different Wednesday afternoon, Jan. 30.

An arctic cold front will pass through the region accompanied by a line of snow showers and/or snow squalls that will last around 30 minutes to one hour, the National Weather Service warned in a Hazardous Weather Statement issued just before 10 a.m. Wednesday.

"Brief whiteout conditions with a quick coating to around an inch of snow is possible in any of the heavier snow squalls," the statement said. "Motorists should plan for hazardous travel during the evening commute."

After morning sun, clouds will increase as the cold front nears. The high temperature will be in the low 20s with a wind-chill factor between 5 and 15 degrees with gusts as high as 45 mph.

The most likely window for snow showers and snow squalls is between 2 p.m. and 4 p.m. Wednesday.

It will be bitterly cold overnight with a low temperature around zero degrees.

The bitter cold will continue through the end of the workweek with a high temperature in the teens both Thursday, Jan. 31 and Friday, Feb. 1 under mostly sunny skies.

The mercury will finally get back to the freezing mark for a high temperature on Saturday on another sunny day.
