SATURDAY: Clouds will be gradually decreasing as we move throughout the afternoon. However, the return of sunshine doesn’t point to a warm up as temperatures remain in the low 30s for afternoon highs. With high pressure settling in, winds will play less of a role, with wind chills only a few degrees cooler.
TONIGHT: Overnight we will keep mostly clear skies overhead thanks to the aforementioned high pressure. Temperatures will drop into the lower 20s overnight, so bundle up if you have any plans that take you outdoors tonight.
EXTENDED: With winds turning to a more southerly direction overnight, Sunday will be warmer with temperatures reaching the low to mid 40s by the afternoon. Clouds will begin to increase later in the day ahead of our next approaching system. This low will track to the south of the viewing area, but will send enough moisture our way to bring rain in from the southwest Sunday night. Thankfully, the cold air doesn’t move in until after this system passes, and we’ll just be dealing with wet roads Monday morning as temperatures stay above freezing. That rain will linger into the first half of Monday and temperatures look to make it back into the low 40s then cooling off to the mid 20s for any New Year’s Eve festivities. We’ll be starting off the new year on a frigid foot with temperatures only making it into the mid 20s Tuesday. Wind chills both Tuesday and Wednesday morning look to be in the single digits with a cold northwest breeze. Temperatures gradually warm throughout the week, getting back to average by Thursday.
