Chilly start this morning and expect little change as highs will only top out near 28 degrees today. Luckily, a high pressure system can be seen moving into our region from the west (below). This will allow for some much needed sun over the next several days. Unfortunately for us today, cold air advection will continue moving in from the northwest following the cold front that brought brief snow showers to our area yesterday. To add to the temperatures, winds could make it feel in the teens this afternoon and tomorrow. Be cautious if you plan to be outdoors for longer periods of time today or tomorrow, as frostbite and hypothermia are real dangers.
As for the next couple of days, expect a similar pattern as today. As described yesterday, zonal flow is dominating our region leaving us “high and dry” for the next few days. Moving to Tuesday, it will remain mostly sunny for the day with high’s slightly warmer near 35 degrees. Winds will pick up more tomorrow, so the dangers of hypothermia and frostbite will stick around for your Tuesday, too.
Today (3/04): Mostly sunny and cold. Winds from the north/northwest can make temperatures feel much colder than they are.
Tonight: Mostly clear and cold
Tuesday (3/05): Mostly sunny and cold. Winds could make wind chill values feel in the single digits.
Tuesday Night: Clear and cold
