Discussion

Arctic air has invaded the region for the first time this season and we’ll be in its grips right through tomorrow. Temperatures today will be hard pressed to reach 30 degrees and a biting wind will produce wind chills in the single digits. Snow showers are possible at any time today and there will be some sunshine as well. Tomorrow will not feel quite as harsh as today as the winds will be weaker, but highs will once again have trouble reaching 30 degrees. This Arctic air mass will then retreat by the time the weekend approaches and highs on Saturday should return to near 50.
