NBC Storm Team 4

 

Updated Storm Team 4 forecast 10:24 a.m. Wednesday, Feb. 10

We could have a few flurries on Wednesday, but get ready for temperatures to take a big tumble. Daytime highs will top out in the mid- to upper 30s, but with the winds it will feel more like the 20s for much of the day. Winds will be in the 10-15 mph range and will only increase overnight. In fact, by the time you wake up Thursday morning, wind chills will be in the single digits.

Through the day Thursday, wind chills will improve to the teens, but that’s it. Winds will stay gusty, not dying down until late in the evening. We will have some sunshine on Thursday with more clouds filling in on Friday.

Friday will be fairly quiet, with a lighter wind and temperatures in the lower to mid-30s. Then the weekend will feature a big cooldown: Temperatures will only top out in the lower to mid- 20s for the weekend, with very blustery conditions. Wind chills on Saturday will only be in the single digits, and overnight leading into Sunday morning, wind chills will be 5 to 10 below zero! The weekend will be dry, but we’ll be watching for our next storm system to bring us some snow and rain by Monday.
