Hopefully you were bundled up this morning on the way out, because cold winds have dominated the day. Highs mainly reached near 40 and into the lower 40s, but wind chills have been closer to freezing. Wind and cold are the main stories for tonight and tomorrow before things moderate slightly to start the weekend.

Through Tonight: Keep the winter gear handy, it's going to be mostly clear, cold and breezy overnight. Winds continue to be gusty from the west, up to around 25 mph at times. Lows range from the upper teens in the coldest spots to the low-or-mid 20s downtown.

Tomorrow (Friday): Another cold one is on tap for the end of the work week. Look for mostly sunny skies and temperatures struggling to reach the mid-and-upper 30s. Winds continue to gust up to around 25 mph during the day, but should begin to subside by late afternoon or evening.

I love the cold temps and the wind, even without snow. Seems like we often get a cold snap in early December, but beyond 12/5, it doesn't much translate into snow.

Sue Palka just called for rain not snow on Sunday.

In the mountains, we're down to 19F already tonight.
