The core of the arctic air is now moving into the area with many locations now dropping below 10 degrees. Temperatures will hold between 1 to 10 degrees overnight with winds speeds of 10-20mph, gusting to 30mph. This will produce wind chills of -10 to -20 overnight into Saturday morning.

Saturday continues cold and windy with afternoon temperatures still less than 20 degrees. Anyone attending Christmas Eve services should prepare for wind chills of -5 to 5 degrees Saturday evening. Sunday remains cold, but we start to lose the winds with afternoon temperatures around 24F.

Next week starts cold, but each day continues to get warmer and we will see highs around 50 toward the end of next week. There is also little to no chance for rain or snow between the holidays. A look into New Years weekend shows much warmer conditions with highs in the 50s. It’s still too early to determine if we remain dry next weekend, but in general, we see no big storms for the start of 2023.
