Our slow climb out of our deep freeze starts today.

A Wind Chill Warning is still in effect as wind chill values will lie between -15 to -35 degrees today.  Our air temperature is expected to get back above zero however thanks to mainly sunny skies and  west/southwest winds of 10-15 mph.

We’re likely to drop below zero again tonight before a more earnest warm-up begins Wednesday.  Breezy southwest winds should push temperatures to near 20 degrees with wind chills between 5 to -20.  Again abundant sunshine is expected Wednesday.

Our temperatures will climb yet another notch Thursday with highs near 30 degrees.  That warm-up will be accompanied by the chance of snow with accumulations of 1-2 inches possible. We’ll cool back down Friday behind the system that’s expected to bring the snow.
