Tonight: Clouds will begin to clear once the cold front passes. As the front moves through, temperatures will drastically drop, and winds will increase. The hard freeze is in effect for overnight lows falling into the upper teens and lower 20s. Wind chills will fall into the single digits into the morning with a wind chill advisory in place.
Tomorrow: Skies will be mostly clear with some sunshine, but that will not help warm us up all too much. Afternoon highs will mostly still be below freezing near 30 degrees. Winds will also continue to be breezy allowing for wind chills in the 20s. Going into the night, temperatures will again drop to hard freeze criteria in the low 20s with wind chills in the teens.
Saturday – Sunday: Afternoon highs will barely reach above freezing for a few hours before falling again to the low 20s. Christmas day will finally have slightly warmer highs in the mid 40s after a frigid morning
Make sure you make preparations before the cold arrives and before you leave town. If proper precautions are not taken, pipes may burst, animals can suffer or die, and people can get hypothermia.
Beyond: Gradual warming will occur heading into next week towards New Years with temperatures closer to average.
