Local Forecast Discussion

Today: Brisk and cooler despite plenty of sunshine. High: 48

Tonight: Clear with a diminishing wind and record challenging lows. Low 28

Thursday: Breezy and cool with times of clouds and sunshine. High: 51 Low: 30

The last 24 hours have been wild to say the least. While today won't be nearly as wild it will be very windy and chilly despite plenty of sunshine. There will also be a few slick spots on area roadways this morning after the rapid freeze last night, so please use some caution while traveling to your destination this morning. Overnight tonight skies will remain relatively clear and that will allow the temperatures to fall to near record lows. Thursday will continue to feature a good amount of sunshine, but temperatures will only bounce back to the low 50s. And it will still be breezy on Thursday making it feel a bit cooler outside. Friday will be less windy and closer to seasonable as highs push into the upper 50s under partly cloudy skies.
