The flurries are coming to an end this morning across the region. Most of the flurries were actually river-effect flurries from the Ohio River. The satellite imagery below explains.
Temperatures will remain quite cold today despite mostly sunny skies. Highs will likely only top out around 20°. Northwest winds will make it feel colder than that.
Overnight lows are once again expected to drop into the single digits. Lighter northwest winds should limit the extremely cold wind chills.
Conditions should finally warm above freezing on Thursday, though it won’t be much. However, this will feel quite warm due to the bitter cold we’ve become accustomed to. A few people may feel the urge to “swim” through the snow. Have fun with that.
The warmth will be brought by southerly flow. This will continue Thursday night and lead to milder lows around 20° or maybe the upper teens.
That southerly flow will continue to warm us up on Friday, when we should top out in the low 40s. The warming trend continues into the weekend with highs reaching the mid to upper 50s on Sunday!
That should wrap up this forecast. Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a great, warm day!
