PM Update: Cold begins to relax a bit

By Ian Livingston

Cold has begun to relent ever so slightly, but the big difference today has been the relatively lighter -- if still occasionally gusty -- winds. After days of persistent gusts near and past 30 mph, today's random gust above 15 mph was not too hard to stomach. Afternoon highs were also a touch warmer, with readings generally in the mid-30s with some upper 30s as well.

Through Tonight: Temperatures tumble again heading through the evening. We see an increase in clouds as the night wears on, so partly cloudy by late evening to mostly cloudy past midnight. These clouds help keep temperatures up a bit, but it's still plenty chilly with lows dipping to near 20 in the suburbs and the mid-to-upper 20s downtown.

Tomorrow (Friday): Mostly cloudy skies may continue into the morning, but the day should feature a clearing trend. Other than that, we stick with the lighter winds and temperatures warm higher than we've seen of late. Overall, it might feel kind of pleasant as highs reach near 40 and into the lower 40s.

Migraine weather: Does the weather give you a headache? A new study says it might all be in your head. Researchers in Austria observed 238 adult migraine sufferers for a period of 3 months and compared the data against weather observations from a local meteorological institute. They found that weather factors were of "very limited" importance when it came to getting a migraine. Of course, past studies have found the opposite.

That clipper looks to be further south and a little more potent than expected! Sure we can score a few snow flurries out of this thing...
