Forecast: Wind Wanes, Cold Continues

By Jason Samenow

Light mix possible tomorrow

Yesterday's bitter winds will take a breather, but cold conditions will hang on for at least another day. Temperatures will moderate somewhat tomorrow -- enough so that rain is more likely than snow as a cold front triggers another round of precipitation. Cold and mostly dry conditions return Wednesday through Friday.

TODAY

Sunny, calm and cold. 30-35. Be ready for numbing single digits and low teens if you're headed out early. By noon though, temperatures will have risen through the 20s with the sun shining brightly. Most locations should reach freezing in the afternoon and, with little wind to speak of, it will feel significantly warmer than yesterday. Overnight, some high clouds will increase after midnight. It will remain quite cold, with lows in the mid teens in the colder suburbs to the low 20s downtown.

TUESDAY

Light snow changing to light rain. 35-40. An approaching cold front is likely to produce a round of precipitation during the day. Enough cold air should linger in the morning for the precipitation to start as some light snow if it arrives in time. By afternoon, any snow should change over to rain as southerly winds ahead of the front boost temperatures above freezing. Overnight, the front will clear and the rain will end. It will turn windy, with lows in the mid 20s.

WEDNESDAY

Mostly sunny and brisk. Mid 30s. A reinforcing shot of cold air will stream into the metro area. A bit of a breeze will return and it will another bundle-up kind of day, with wind chills in the 20s. Overnight, a weak weather disturbance will approach the region with increasing clouds and the chance of a flurry or two towards morning. Lows will range from 20-25.

A LOOK AHEAD

After some morning flurries, clouds will likely decrease on Thursday, with highs in the mid 30s.

Temperatures approach 40 Friday, under sunny skies.

Milder conditions return for the weekend, with temperatures in the 40s. Saturday should be dry during the day, with rain possible at night and continuing into Sunday.
