Strong winds arrive for the weekend

It's an Arctic air mass that will not only bring the cold for the weekend, but the wind as well.  A strong, Arctic cold front will move through around Midnight Friday night.  Winds will quickly increase from the northwest once the front passes.  Temperatures will fall only into the low teens tonight with light snow likely forming along the front through Saturday morning.

Northwest winds will gust to 30 mph overnight Friday, but then increase Saturday morning.  The strongest winds will occur through Noon Saturday where wind gusts could reach close to 40 mph.  A Wind Advisory may be needed for parts of the Stateline Saturday morning.  The wind combined with temperatures right around 10 degrees will force wind chills well below zero during the morning.  The wind will lighten up a little Saturday night, but at the same time temperatures will fall below zero.  This means wind chills will fall near -25 degrees to -27 degrees by Sunday morning.
