Afternoon highs make it into the upper 20s to middle 30s on Thursday under mostly cloudy skies.

Friday is still on the colder side, with a bit more sunshine and temperatures in the lower to middle 30s.
WEEKEND OUTLOOK: Arctic air remains in place through the weekend, making for below average temperatures for this time in January!
