CHILL RETURNS: Showers have come to an end for the region this morning, and cold air is on the way. By daybreak, strong northwest winds pull in an arctic air mass, knocking temperatures near or below freezing. Strong winds and even higher gusts continue through the day. Some gusts could reach as high as 40 mph at times, creating wind chill values in the teens and 20s. There’s a fair amount of sunshine, but it does little to warm us. Temperatures remain in the 30s through the rest of the day. After a sunny start, clouds thicken Thursday as yet another system approaches. Highs are near 40. This system passes us well to the south, but the northern fringe clips us through Friday. With temperatures in the 30s, some light snow or snow showers are possible. A coating to two inches of accumulation are possible.
THIS WEEKEND: Saturday is still on the chilly side, with perhaps a few snow showers overnight as a weak piece of energy passes through. Sunshine is back for Sunday, and temperatures begin to moderate. You can expect highs to moderate into the 40s.
SUBSTANTIAL WARMING!: On Monday the warming continues with plenty of sunshine. Highs should peak above the 50 degree mark! Temperatures continue to jump under plenty of sunshine on Tuesday. Readings rise into the 60s!
Have a great Wednesday!
