Brisk wind will take us through the first half of the day before eventually letting up this afternoon. Due to the wind daytime highs will once again reach the low to mid 40s throughout our region.

Much colder air is on track to invade overnight allowing for tonight's lows to fall into the upper teens. Cold air will continue to funnel in as we head through the later half of the work week. Highs will remain in the low 30s on Thursday with a few possible flurries around the capital.

Friday is shaping up to be still colder with highs in the mid to low 20s. The below average temperatures are expected to last through the weekend and into next week.

Forecast models are showing another area of low pressure headed our way. The models have been differing on how this pressure system will play out early next week. If it tracks further north, snow is likely and if it stays south, we should remain dry. One way or another it will likely keep temperatures below average next week.

As of now it appears some snow is possible Tuesday night into Wednesday.
