Winds remain very gusty, especially during the afternoon.

MORE COLD DAYS: The cold, below average air mass lingers through Thursday. Breezy winds bring quite the frigid start, with wind chills in the teens and single digits. There is a mixture of clouds and sunshine, with more clouds to the north and northeast through the day. The breezes pick up as well once again. With afternoon highs in the 20s, wind chill values feel like the teens and single digits. Clouds clear through the evening, and it’s a frigid night. Expect lows in the upper single numbers to lower teens.

 

Upper Level

An even colder arctic blast moves in for the weekend.

WEEKEND ARCTIC BLAST: A wave of energy moves through Friday and brings the chance for some evening snow showers and flurries. Afternoon high temperatures are in the middle to upper 20s. The weekend brings some of the coldest air we’ve seen so far this season. It’s a polar blast of air, so you can expect highs in the teens and lows in the single digits! Some places could even fall below 0 Sunday morning! Wind chill values are expected to be below freezing as well at times. Saturday is cloudy with plenty of clouds and flurries. More sunshine works in for Sunday.

 

 

NEXT WEEK: On Monday temperatures moderate into the 20s, and a weak storm system approaches. This brings the chance for some snow showers. We’ll be monitoring it for lingering effects on Tuesday, and this includes the chance for rain, mixed precipitation, and snow. Currently it is too far out to tell. It is worth watching at this time. Temperatures continue to moderate.

 

 

Have a great Thursday!
