strong gusts over 40mph at times, wind chill readings are in the low teens. More clouds than sunshine and I can’t rule out a few light snow flurries or snow showers. The winds will cause blowing and drifting snow. More sunshine pops out Thursday, but the chill remains. Temperatures are only a few degrees higher in the upper 20s to near 30 degrees. While the breeze is not as strong, it is expected to be 10 to 15 mph. Friday starts out sunnier with clouds returning later in the day. It is milder near 40 too. Keep in mind, however, average high temperature is 49 degrees so temperatures are still falling short of where we should be this time of year. Friday evening rain and or snow showers are possible as our next system arrives.
