An Arctic Blast On The Way!
(Click To Enlarge)
There is patchy, dense fog affecting some parts of the region this morning, producing visibilities down to a quarter mile and a coating of black ice on exposed surfaces. Otherwise, today will be partly cloudy with highs in the upper 40's-low 50's. An arctic cold front will arrive late tonight - toward Friday morning. Sky conditions will be partly to mostly cloudy tonight, along with the chance for a shower ahead of the front. Temperatures will hold in the 40's much of the night, then drop into the 30's toward morning. Behind the front, Friday will be mostly sunny, but windy & uncomfortably cold. Temperatures will drop through the 30's during the day. A northwest wind at 15-30 mph, gusting to 40 mph will cause wind chill factors to fall from the 20's into the teens during the day. Many places will see low temperatures drop into the teens late Friday night/early Saturday morning, and some of the colder places might even see some single numbers! The sky will be mostly clear and it will still be breezy, causing wind-chills to drop below 0 at times. Saturday looks mostly sunny with winds diminishing during the day and highs of 36-42. Partly sunny Sunday, with highs in the 40's.
