Noon Update: The clouds have thinned and let in some sunshine but that is just not helping. Temperatures are still running 25-30 degrees colder than 24 hours ago and wind chills are barely in the double digits for many of us. Bundle up...we're staying below freezing for at least the next 24 hours.
Morning Forecast: Cold start to our Tuesday morning! Some of us have even had single-digit wind chills, so bundle up! Actual air temperatures this morning are in the 20s, which has been about 20-30° colder than yesterday morning so prepare for a sudden chill as you walk out the door this morning.
No umbrella needed, but you'll want all your cold weather gear, for sure. Today will be the coldest we've been in a month! The wind will keep our wind chills in the teens just about all day long.
Looking for something festive to do on a really cold evening? Head over to the State Fairgrounds for Christmas Nights of Lights. You just stay in your warm car and drive around listening to coordinated music while you watch the lights.
Our sky will clear tonight and that'll mean our temperatures will plummet and leave us very cold by Wednesday morning. Temperatures will be in the teens Wednesday morning with some single-digit wind chills possible.
By 9 a.m. we're all back up to the 20s and climbing but not much more than today. Wednesday's high will still be very much below normal with a max point of 31 degrees.
Temperatures stay cold through the weekend. We could have some rain Friday with a slight mix possible on Saturday. My eye is stuck on Monday where we could see some snow. Far too early to put out snowfall forecasts on that as models are jumping around noticeably, but I will be monitoring that very closely.
