It’s quite the chilly start out there this morning. Temperatures as of 7:45 AM are still around 26°! Brrr!
Temperatures are expected to rebound rather nicely today thanks to southerly winds and mostly sunny skies throughout the day. Afternoon highs will probably top out around 57°!
Those southerly winds will be pretty stout. Wind speeds should increase this afternoon to 10 to 15 mph, with gusts as high as 25 mph possible. The HRRR Model shows the overall weather set up well.
Clouds will be on the increase overnight as a clipper swings another cold front through the region. Some isolated drizzle or flurries won’t be out of the question as lows drop to around 31° by Tuesday morning.
Cold Sticks Around
The cold weather will stick around on Tuesday. Northerly flow aloft will once again bring cold air from Canada into the region. Highs on Tuesday will probably remain in the 30s. Gusty northwest winds will likely make it feel more like its in the 20s all day. The Hi-Res NAM displays wind chill temperatures in the mid to upper 20s by 3 PM.
Lows on Tuesday night will drop back into the mid 20s.
Wednesday will also remain on the chilly side of things. However, southerly flow ahead of yet another clipper system may warm temperatures into the mid 40s. Sunny skies and a southwest wind around 5 to 10 mph are expected as well.
Wednesday may also bring a few flurries to the region as well. We’ll keep watching for snow potential Wednesday evening and overnight as lows drop to around freezing under partly cloudy skies.
That should wrap up this forecast. Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a great day!
