Another arctic front helped temperatures to plunge today. After early morning highs near 40, temperatures fell to the teens this afternoon. Frigid air will continue to blow in on blustery winds tonight. The mercury will drop to near or below zero in most locations with wind chills lower than that. Because of that, the National Weather Service has a wind chill advisory for areas east of I-99 and a wind chill warning to the west. These advisories are in effect through noon Tuesday. The good news is that we'll at least have some sunshine the next couple of days. The bad news is that it won't help much. The mercury will only rise into the single digits Tuesday and the lower to middle teens on Wednesday. The arrival of milder air and a weak disturbance will bring some clouds mixed with our sunshine on Thursday but the mercury will rebound into the 20s. The mercury will continue to rise Thursday night. It will be warm enough the next disturbance could bring a wintry mix or snow Friday into Saturday. In fact, precipitation may change to plain rain for a while Saturday. A front will bring some flurries then clearing on Sunday but it won't be that cold with highs in the 30s. In fact, the break from arctic air should remain into next week.
