Wind Chills Will Make It Hard To Warm Up Today
Wind chills are definitely the main story in the weather today.
Today continues to look like the coldest day of the season. The cold temperatures have caused some flash freezing resulting in slick roads. Everyone needs to be careful when driving this morning. Otherwise, this morning's lows will bottom out in the single digits to lower teens with minimum wind chills ranging from -26 degrees to -1 degree. Not much relief is expected this afternoon with highs only reaching the teens. Wind chills will also be a concern this afternoon, ranging from -10 degrees to 10 degrees. At least the sun will be shining though. Tomorrow will be better than today, but still cold. Low tomorrow morning will be in the single digits below zero and above zero, but winds will be lighter with slightly better wind chills ranging from -10 degrees to 0 degrees. Temperatures will reach the 20's to low 30's Friday afternoon with sunny skies. Saturday and Sunday temperatures become much more tolerable with highs in the 40's and 50's. It'll also be dry with partly sunny skies. Next chance for rain comes Monday.
