Starkly colder than where we were just 24 hours ago – afternoon temperatures will barely manage the 40 degree mark behind the arctic cold front that has pushed through the area.
SUNDAY: Bundle up! Don’t expect temperatures to much – if anything. Afternoon temperatures will be mainly in the 30s and lower 40s; wind chills will be well into the upper 20s and lower 30s. Don’t be surprised to see a few sleet pellets mixing in with any lingering showers in the area through mid-day. Skies will break up for some stars overnight with lows dropping into the 20s.
MONDAY: With wind still aggressive out of the north, wind chills will be deep into the teens to near 20° to start off the day. Keep this in mind as you send the kids off to the bus stop – under mostly to partly sunny skies, we'll claw our way back into the 40s for highs ahead of another big chill into the upper 20s and lower 30s by early Tuesday morning.
MID-WEEK: Clouds will mix with sun for your Tuesday and Wednesday as temperatures begin to rebound slowly back to near seasonable normals. Tuesday will feature highs in the 50s; we'll near 60 by Wednesday with the option of a few showers late Wednesday evening.
LATE WEEK: A cold front will drop into the area by late Wednesday, sparking a chance for a few showers south of US 84 into early Thursday before clearing out. Expect a few quiet days leading up to Christmas with highs in the 50s on Thursday and Friday. Another system may approach the region by Saturday – this could bring a chance for rain with highs in the 60s.
