NOWCAST THROUGH LATE MORNING:
Partly to mostly cloudy with scattered flurries. Very cold.
6am: Breezy with Flurries 16°
8am: Partly Cloudy 18°
10am: Mostly Sunny 22°

BIG ARCTIC CHILL:
A frigid air mass for November standards is now settling into the region. Brace yourself for near zero and single digit wind chills through the morning! Overnight lows plunged into the teens but the wind will make it feel like it’s zero at times! Today could be our coldest November 18th ever, even despite some sun at times. Our all-time coldest high temperature for this day is 28, set way back in 1880. We’re calling for highs only in the mid to upper 20s. It remains very cold tonight under fair skies.

A WARMING TREND:
Temperatures moderate mid to late week as southerly winds take over. Wednesday and Thursday appear dry, with highs recovering into the 40s as arctic air retreats. By Friday, we see our next chance for precipitation, perhaps starting as a light wintry mix to close out the week. It’s then rain – and maybe even a thunderstorm or two – Saturday into Sunday as warmer air surges northward. Highs climb to near 55 Saturday and into the low 60s for Sunday and Monday!
