YOUR FIRST ALERT FORECAST FROM THERESA BRYANT
Cold air and blustery winds will be the watchwords for today as a quick moving front exits the region. We’ll see mostly sunny skies and chilly conditions this afternoon, with highs in the upper teens to lower 20’s. Brisk winds out of the northwest could produce wind chill values in the single digits. Temperatures and wind chills will plunge into the sub-zero category tonight, followed by a continued chill in the air for the start of your weekend. A WIND CHILL ADVISORY will be in effect from 9 PM until 9AM Saturday for our northern counties. Look for cold sunshine for Saturday with highs struggling into the teens. Readings return to the 20’s on Sunday as our next clipper system sweeps into the upper Midwest. This one could produce more in the way of accumulating snow starting Saturday night, with 1” to 3” expected by Sunday evening. Heavier amounts could be found mainly north of I-80. Temperatures return to the 30’s next week.
