Tuesday, January 2 Morning Forecast Discussion

Wind Chill Advisory for all Newscenter 11 counties until 9am Tuesday.
Hard Freeze Warning for all Newscenter 11 counties until Wednesday.

Happy Tuesday! Low temperatures as you head out the door this morning are near record lows as we sit in the teens throughout our area. With winds from the north anywhere between 5 and 10 mph, it feels like it is in the single digits, so be sure to bundle up as you head to work. We will manage to get above freezing for highs area-wide as we’ll stay under partly cloudy skies throughout your Tuesday. Winds will be light tonight into Wednesday morning, and that will allow temperatures to drop into the teens once again. More sunshine will be in store for Wednesday as highs will reach the upper-30s to the 40 degree mark throughout the area.

We’ll have plenty of sunshine to close out the week and begin the weekend, with a gradual warming trend back to average beginning Friday. Lows will be in the teens for Friday morning, and that will be the last of the teens for at least the next seven days. We warm up back into the 50’s by Sunday, and we’ll see rain chances increase by Monday as a cold front is projected to move through our area at some point next week. Colder air will follow this, but not nearly as cold as we are seeing this week.
