Temperatures will remain below normal through the extended period with bouts of flurries here and there

This Afternoon:
Very Blustery
Temperatures: Mid to Upper Teens
Wind Chill: Below Zero/Single Digits
Cold and Crisp
Lows: Around 10
Wind: Light
Flurries Possible
Highs: Lower 20s
Wind: W 5-10 mph

And here we go: the big chill! Temperatures today will remain in the mid-teens with wind chills in the negatives to the single digits. Winds will blow out of the northwest today 10-20 mph with some higher gusts! Winds will start to calm though as we go through the late afternoon/early evening hours and will eventually go light during the overnight hours. Overnight lows fall into the single digits to the lower teens with increasing clouds. A few flurries can’t be ruled out tomorrow as another cold front sweeps through the area. This will bring another reinforcing shot of cold air to the region as we head into the weekend so only expecting temperatures on Thursday and Friday to top out in the low 20s. By the weekend, daytime highs will move to the low 30s and some locations may even surpass the freezing mark (32 degrees) but really not expected to rise above freezing until Monday. A few passing flurries also around this weekend, mainly Saturday.
