Sunday Night Cold

It was a sunny but cold day afternoon today and
the cold temperatures will continue to be the focus tonight and tomorrow. We will be close to another record tonight, with an overnight low temperature forecasted to hit -10°, with the record being -12°. Along with tonight's cold temperatures, winds from the northwest will create cold wind chills. A Wind Chill Advisory is in effect tonight through Monday morning, with wind chills dropping to near 30° below. The cold sticks around for Monday as well with temperatures only warming to near 10°. The good news is that it will be another sunny afternoon. All this cold weather is due to another arctic high pressure system moving into the Midwest. High pressure originating over the arctic carries the characteristics of being dry but extremely cold, it also brings clear and sunny skies. With the lack of cloud cover though, the 'warmth' won't be insulated and temperatures will drop overnight.

We do see a bit of a warm up on Tuesday, with temperatures warming into the upper 20s, but then temperatures drop back into the teens for the rest of the work week.
