Good Monday Morning Everyone!
I will say this a few times over the next couple of days, but if you have any reason to be outside the next two days.....bundle up!
This cold is not the normal winter cool down we see, this is true arctic air from northern Canada. You can already feel a certain chill to the air this morning, even though temperatures are in the 10s and 20s. We will see a good amount of sunshine that will warm things up to around freezing, or 32 degrees.
Temperatures tonight will tumble with a stiff northwest wind this evening, which is why we have Wind Chill advisories in effect. As we wake up tomorrow morning, most of us will be down into the single digits with wind chills below zero. You will need to be covering as much of your exposed skin as possible heading to work or school on your Tuesday.
Things don’t get any better through the day....the air will not warm quickly, leaving most of us in the teens. Temperatures Wednesday morning back down into the single digits.
A storm system looks to get organized for late week, which could get a bit messy depending on the track. Right now, it looks to start as a mix of everything switching to snow to finish and then more arctic air for the first half of the weekend!
