A cold wind will make today feel a bit like winter

The cold weather has arrived! A strong cold wind will stick around for this morning with winds sustained around 20-30 mph… some gusts will exceed 40 mph. Because of this, we are under a Wind Advisory until noon. Temperatures are only going to climb into the upper 30s by the afternoon, but the wind is going to cause it to feel like the mid 20s! Overcast conditions will remain for the rest of the morning, and some sun is possible by late this afternoon.

Those winds will calm down a touch this evening and during the overnight hours. However, overnight lows will plummet into the low 20s. While the winds will be weaker, a northwesterly breeze tonight around 10 mph will make the wind chill in the teens!

The chilly weather sticks around tomorrow, but the winds will be much calmer. More sunshine is in store for Sunday with highs only in the low 40s. Overnight lows will once again be in the low 20s. Monday will be a touch warmer with highs in the mid 40s with a mostly sunny sky.

We’ll see our next chance of rain on Tuesday and Wednesday with another system moving through.
