Brutal cold continues through Tuesday with a warm up in sight

TUESDAY: Make sure you’re bundled up out the door in the morning. We start off near 8 degrees with wind chills close to -5. It’ll be a touch warmer through this afternoon, but unfortunately still brutally cold as it will be breezy through the afternoon. Winds will be sustained at 12-18 mph gusting to 26 at times. Wind chills will be in the single digits and teens all day tomorrow, under a few clouds.

TONIGHT: Winds calm into this evening under mostly clear skies. Overnight lows drop back below average into the low teens. With winds out of the west from 6-9 mph wind chills will drop into the single digits.

EXTENDED: The polar jet which has crashed south will slowly begin retreating throughout the week. By Wednesday highs are back above freezing, with temperatures near 40 on Thursday. Our next chance at precipitation arrives on Thursday with an uppper level wave moving north of the area. Late Thursday morning rain and snow chances arrive, but may be light and spotty. North of I-70, we see a slight snow chance. Any accumulation would be light. As you head south snow makes the changeover to rain. We’re looking dry Friday, but a potent upper level trough, bringing a surface low, will track north of the area into the weekend. Ahead of this, a warm front will lift bringing temperatures back into the upper 50s by Saturday with widespread showers and the potential for thunderstorms through the day. As the low pressure system moves to east, winds will shift out of the west dropping temperatures into Sunday. By Sunday highs will be situated back in the mid to upper 40s with mostly sunny skies.
