CHILLIER AND BREEZY: Chillier temperatures and more breezes are expected heading into the weekend. The winds don’t settle this morning, so expect an extra chill to temperatures in the 30s. At times it feels like the 20s when accounting for wind speed. There’s partly clear skies and a few lake effect flurries, mainly northwest of Harrisburg. It’s more of the same through the afternoon. Winds are breezy once again, with afternoon wind gusts as high as 30 miles per hour at times. Temperatures are a bit lower too. Highs are in the upper 30s to lower 40s, with lower wind chill values feeling like the 20s at times.
