Here comes the winds! Today will feature some sunshine, more likely by the afternoon, but the winds will be the main story today. Winds will gust out of the northwest anywhere from 45 to 50 mph at times across the region! A wind advisory is in place beginning at noon and continuing through midnight for all of the area. Also, a piece of energy floating through could bring some advertised flurries or a light snow shower (conversational snow shower at best with no accumulation expected). Temperatures today will fall through the 30s with wind chills ending up in the teens by the afternoon. Clear skies overnight with still windy conditions will take temperatures into the teens with wind chills in the single digits. High pressure will then move overhead on Saturday, promoting sunshine. However, winds will still be with us for at least the first half of the day. Winds will die down after lunch tomorrow and more clouds will move in, especially during the overnight ahead of our next system. Our next system will be knocking on our doors by Sunday morning, bringing a chance for some snow showers along with some rain and wintry mix. Once again, precip type has yet to be determined. Temperatures on Sunday will top out in the upper 30s. Precip will continue to fall through Monday morning. We will clear out and cool back down from Monday and Tuesday.
