Turning windy with low wind chills Tuesday morning
Winds will increase tonight making for a very cold start on Tuesday
As one system exits, another weaker disturbance dives into the southwestern portion of our region overnight. Winds are expected to increase overnight with 20-30 mph gusts possible. A few 40 mph wind speeds can’t be ruled out in the mountains. Aside from a few mountain snow showers, skies turn partly cloudy and it remains rather cold with lows getting into the low/mid 20s. Wind chill values will be in the teens and low 20s early Tuesday.
Clear and cold conditions are expected early Tuesday morning. Winds will continue to be gusty and wind chills will be in the teen and 20s. We’ll keep gusty winds throughout the day, especially in the higher elevations. Even with sunny skies, highs barely reach the low 40s.
WEDNESDAY & THURSDAY
A dry stretch of weather is expected through the end of the week as temperatures begin warming near/above normal by Thursday. Highs climb to the low 50s with overnight lows staying near freezing.
Our next cold front should arrive over the weekend delivering a chance of showers late Saturday followed by increasing sunshine late in the weekend along with the return of the windy and cooler conditions. We’ll have a better idea on the timing of showers as we get closer, but neither day appears to be a washout.
