Windy & Turning Sharply Colder Overnight -Bill Graul

Bitterly Cold Wednesday Through Friday

Tonight’s Forecast Low: 6F / Wednesday’s Forecast High: 10F…

Hopefully you enjoyed the fairly “mild” temps today as highs were in the mid 30s to low 40s. Temps come crashing down overnight tonight as a strong cold front races southeast across the region. Expect temps to plummet into the single digits for most by sunrise Wednesday morning. Not only that, but blustery NW winds 10-20 mph, and gusts to 35 mph, will cause wind chills in the -10s for most as you head out the door for work or school Wednesday morning.

Potential Wind Chills Wednesday Morning

Wind chills could get as cold as -25F to our west in parts of Minnesota and Iowa, so a WIND CHILL ADVISORY is in effect for those areas from 3:00 a.m. to Noon on Wednesday.

Wind Chill Headlines

Partly cloudy, breezy and cold Wednesday with highs only in the single digits to low teens. Blustery NW winds 10-20, gusts to 30 mph, will keep wind chills in the -5F to -20F range through the day. It will be even colder Wednesday night into Thursday morning, with lows in the -5F to -15F range and wind chills likely dropping into the -15F to -30F range for many.

Lots of sunshine but remaining frigid Thursday with highs in the single digits. Mainly clear skies will lead to an even colder Thursday night into Friday morning… with lows in the -0s and -10s. At least winds will be lighter, so wind chills won’t be too much colder than air temperatures that night.

Looking Ahead… Partly sunny and not quite as cold Friday with highs in the low-mid teens. Chance of light snow late Friday night into Saturday, with highs Saturday in the low-mid 20s. Slight chance of light snow showers or flurries Sunday with highs back in the mid teens.

8 Day Build 3

Another chance of light snow on Monday, with highs in the mid-upper teens. It then turns bitterly cold again next Tuesday and Wednesday with highs only in the single digits and overnight lows again dropping well below zero. Brrr!

Have a good Tuesday night and be prepared for the MUCH colder conditions in the morning! -Bill Graul
