The coldest air in a year is forecast to settle in on Wednesday into Thursday. We are expecting highs in the upper 30s on Wednesday afternoon, lows in the teens on Thursday morning and highs struggling to reach the freezing mark by Thursday afternoon. To make matters worse, it's going to be breezy on Thursday and that means feels like temperatures could dip into the negative range.
We are going to ease into this cool down seeing a cold front is moving across the state today and causing temperatures to drop off. Sadly, we say goodbye to the 60s and say hello to afternoon temperatures in the lower 50s. Oh that's just the beginning of cool down number 1. We have plenty of morning temperatures in the 20s to start off early this week and highs in the 40s before the bitter cold arrives with blast number 2.
Now is the time to prepare for what is ahead. Be sure you have your winter clothes ready to go, house winterized and don't forget about your furry friends!
