By Ian Livingston

Temperatures moderate a bit; Late-week storm?

Any way you slice it, today was pretty darn cold. Highs struggled to near freezing or just above in many spots, but that's only part of the story for anyone outside. Winds gusting up to around 40 mph have sent wind chills into the teens at times. The gusty winds finally begin to subside this evening before weakening substantially overnight.

Through Tonight: Winds continue to gust to around 25 or 30 mph into the evening, before weakening overnight. Otherwise it's mostly clear and still very cold. Temperatures tumble to lows in the upper teens and lower 20s.

Tomorrow (Wednesday): After a frigid and mostly sunny start, temperatures moderate slightly under increasingly cloudy skies. Highs reach a bit higher than today with readings making it to the mid-and-upper 30s. Winds will be much weaker so it should feel a good deal warmer even if it's still quite cold.

2009 weather images: The end of the year is upon us -- a perfect time to reflect on the big weather stories of the year. The Weather Channel's Stu Ostro has put together an awesome collection of imagery depicting some of the major weather events of 2009. Among many others, he focuses on VORTEX2, the major Los Angeles fires, and of course, our recent historic snowstorm.
