Chief Meteorologist Ross Janssen says that temperatures will be all over the place heading through the rest of the week and into the weekend. Dry weather should continue for much of the area as well.
Overnight, skies will be clear with lows falling into the 20s around most of the state. Wind chills will go even lower with readings in the teens to start the day Thursday.
Be prepared for more wind on Thursday with gusts up around 25 or 30 mph. Temperatures will drop back to the 40s with sunny skies around the area.
Look for a shift in winds on Friday as south winds bring back temperature readings in the 50s to start the holiday weekend. Winds may gust as high as 30 mph.
It will turn a little colder heading into the weekend with much of the state only getting into the lower 40s. Bitter cold, Arctic air will be coming in for next week with highs mostly in the teens and 20s. Although there could be some light snow, no big winter storms are expected anytime soon.
