Gusty winds will produce wind chills in the teens and 20s, so you’ll need plenty of extra layers heading outdoors. Readings only top out in the lower and middle 30s.

WINTER ARRIVES EARLY

We’ll be talking about wind chills quite a bit in the next 7days

We get a brief break in the clouds Monday, allowing more sunshine to bump temperatures back to the upper 30s and lower 40s. Winds are calmer too. Our next potent system is quickly moving in overnight into Tuesday. Clouds thicken and light snow showers begin before the morning drive time. You’ll need to allow extra time for the commute. Right now, most areas look to pick up an inch of snow. Areas north and northwest may see an additional inch. A punch of Arctic air hits the area, with highs in the 30s Tuesday, plummeting to the 20s by Wednesday. Morning lows in the teens. Prepare for much colder wind chill readings with gusty winds expected both days. Chilly sunshine expected for Thursday, along with a few flurries. Highs are in the lower 30s.
