PM Update: Winter's Chill Continues
Mostly sunny and less windy on Tuesday
Fast-moving clouds of this morning have given way to more and more sunshine as the day progresses, but despite the sun, a deep chill remains. High temperatures in the mid-to-upper 30s are running a good 10 degrees below normal, and persistent wind gusts up to 30 or 40 mph have sent wind chills down into the 20s most of the day.
Tonight: We will witness mostly clear skies overnight with somewhat lighter winds. Temperatures stay well below average, tumbling through the 20s this evening and headed toward lows in the teens for the colder suburbs to the low 20s downtown. Wind speeds will generally be less than 15 mph with a few higher gusts.
Tomorrow (Tuesday): Mostly sunny skies greet us in the morning and stick around all day. Temperatures remain quite chilly as highs only reach the low 40s, but winds continue to die off making it feel a little more pleasant -- at least in the sun.
