We woke up to the coldest temperatures so far this winter season. This was due to an Arctic high pressure system that moved in the area. Actual air temperatures were below zero, with wind chill values of 15 degrees below zero. The wind chill values are still below zero in a few locations. The Arctic high pressure will give us abundant sunshine today though. Highs this afternoon will only reach into the low 20s. Later this afternoon, our winds will start to come out of the south and at times this evening it will be breezy. These breezy conditions will continue into tomorrow. Tomorrow, clouds will move back into the Tri-States so it will be a mostly cloudy day. However, it will be much warmer with highs near 40. Sunday will be a little warmer with highs in the mid 40s. Presidents' Day will be even warmer, near 50, with the chance of scattered rain showers.
