What a difference 24 hours can make! Just yesterday temperatures reached the lower 40s but quickly plummeted last night as a very strong cold front passed through, bringing an arctic airmass. Though any snowfall with this was light and short-lived for the Valley, the biting cold remains our big focus today. As arctic air continues moving in, winds will be gusty out of the northwest. A Wind Chill Warning is in effect until midday Wednesday for northern counties while a Wind Chill Advisory is in effect until midday tomorrow for southern counties. Wind chill values today will drop to a range of -15º to -30º as sustained winds are 15-30 mph. Temperatures are on a falling trend today as we'll near 0º this afternoon with sub-zero lows tonight near -10º. Tomorrow will remain frigid as highs reach the upper single digits under sunny sky. Winds will ease up tomorrow and Wednesday, making for a slightly warmer midweek in the double digits. Snow makes an appearance in the extended forecast towards the weekend with near seasonable temperature back in the 30s.
