Bitter cold is building in and will overspread the area tonight. It will be the coldest air we’ve seen so far this young winter season. The big story will be wind chills as low as -25° at times overnight and early Tuesday. Temperatures, themselves, will range widely from -7 to about 6 above. Please take this cold serious.
The chance of snow tonight is 60%.
Tuesday will be very cold. Highs stay in the single digits in the higher elevations and struggle to 11 or 12 degrees in the valleys. Winds slowly subside through the day but chills could still be as low as -10 even by midday.
Wednesday brings quiet weather with highs back around 34. Thursday also sees highs get back to around 35 with a few snow showers possible. Friday turns colder with some snow showers. It looks like another shot of Arctic air comes in through the day Friday as Canadian high pressure slides south into the Eastern Great Lakes. Highs Saturday will be in the middle teens with lows into Sunday morning around 0.
