This forecast goes unchanged today, with lows expected in the 20s throughout the region tomorrow morning and highs in the mid 30s by the afternoon. On top of that, winds will be howling out of the northwest around 10-20 mph with higher gusts. This will bring the wind chills into the teens and 20s throughout the day with some chills in the single digits in the morning. A few flurries will be possible as well by the late morning to early afternoon. This is probably one of the worst forecasts I have seen so far this year.

Recommendations:

A long sleeve shirt, pants or tights, gloves and a hat would be good to have. Be sure to dress warm with those cold temperatures and gusty winds. You can always bring along some hand warmers as well!
