Bitter cold weather to come

We have seen a cold day with temperatures hovering around the 40° mark with breezy northerly winds. As we head into tonight, our temperatures will fall into the low-20’s with mostly clear skies. Wind chill values could be in the upper teen’s. Be sure to have the winter coat if you are heading out tonight.

7-Day Forecast: We will end the work week cold with high temperatures in the mid to upper 30’s and mostly clear skies. A weekend warm-up is on the way with temperatures quickly climbing through the mid-40’s on Saturday and topping the mid-50’s by Sunday. The weekend will also be dry and feature partly cloudy skies. This nice trend will lead to some of the coldest air of the season with temperatures dipping to numbers that are of a January-like feel with both the high and low temperatures. Veteran’s Day will start this trend with a rain/snow mix possible in the morning and early afternoon. We then look to stay dry through the middle of the work week with high’s only in the 30’s with Tuesday being exceptionally cold.
