ZZZZZ

While it has ceased falling from the sky intense winds are blowing it around reducing visibility and pavement is slick! As the coastal system spins off of our coastline it will continue to draw in some bitterly cold air.

Temperatures will hover in the upper teens in the west and lower 20’s downtown but with wind gusts near 40mph it will at times feel more like -5°  to 10° despite plenty of sunshine.

Winds will calm overnight allowing temps to fall into the teens and even some upward single digits in the suburbs.

Saturday will bring a slight warming trend with highs into the low to mid 30’s with mostly sunny skies. By Sunday we get back to more seasonable conditions, despite an increase in clouds and the threat of some late day rain.
