Today will feature mainly clear skies and cold temps as Arctic air rushes into the region. Look for highs to occur this morning without much of a temperature rebound this afternoon. Instead, temps will continue to drop as gusty winds blast cold air into the region. Temps up north are starting this morning in the 10’s and single digits and will fall below zero by this evening. Closer to the coast, temps are in the 20’s this morning and may tick up to around 30 around noon as downsloping tries to counteract the cold airmass but even in the south temps will fall off this afternoon into the 10’s. Winds will be very busy as well with gusts to near or just over 30 mph likely region wide today. The combination of cold air and high winds will result in very cold wind chills well below zero for most.
Cold air sticks around for tomorrow but looks to moderate by late week.
