The First Alert Forecast from Meteorologist Kevin Phelps
Is this Old Man Winter’s last gasp? We all hope so and the forecast is looking promising for the QCA bearing we get through today. Arctic is firmly entrenched across the upper Midwest which means we will only see highs in the teens again today despite having a ton of sunshine. Winds will start to pick up tonight which will prevent temps from falling off too much, but wind chills will likely be slightly below zero early Friday morning. Friday is the first day of our gradual warm up with highs in the mid 30s which means daytime melting is likely but overnight temps drop below freezing so re-freezing each morning will be possible. Temps will gradually warm into the 40s by Sunday which also brings a small chance for flurries or sprinkles. Beyond this weekend it’s on to Spring as temps will soar into the mid 50s by Tuesday and Wednesday!
TODAY: Mostly sunny and cold. High 15°. Winds: NW 5-10 mph.
TONIGHT: Clear and cold with wind chills near -10°. Low 4° Winds: NW 5-15 mph.
TOMORROW: Mostly sunny, breezy and warmer. High 36°.
