Wintertime returns after a brief respite from the cold

Surprise! We reached 65 degrees on Monday, which felt so good after chilly conditions much of last week and this weekend. Unfortunately, that warmth comes to an end tonight. Here’s a quick look at the next several days.

A dry cold front will push through the area tonight, with gusty north winds and colder temperatures behind it.  Tuesday will be colder with decreasing clouds and north winds to 15 mph with higher gusts, making wind chills during the day near 30.  Lows will drop to near 20 in the city & upper teens in the outer areas Tuesday night, with wind chills in the single digits across the area.

Wind chills expected early Wednesday morning

Highs for the first half of this week will struggle to reach 40, with a slow rise to the lower 50’s by the weekend.  While we will see a change in the weather, thankfully no precipitation is expected as Canadian high pressure moves in.
Another dry cold front is expected to move through Friday, bringing a halt to any warming that we gain over the latter half of the week.

The next chance for any precipitation looks to hold off until the middle of next week (which by the way is the start of February), and looks like it will be all rain.
So be sure you’re prepared for the wind & colder temps on Tuesday and Wednesday!
