Another Day Of Brrrrrriskness

Hey...winter arrived if you hadn't heard or experienced it.  Temperatures are in the lower half of the teens in the city, colder in some spots outside of it.  With the wind out there, it feels like zero or below in a number of locations.  It will be another cold, brrrrrrisk day around town as west and northwest winds, albeit less fierce than yesterday, will continue to blow.  Winds, instead of cranking towards 30 mph, will be in the teens for much of the day with an occasional 20-25 mph gust.

Skies will start mostly clear and then trend mostly cloudy through the day.  Another round of flurries and snow showers lurks around the region as a disturbance pushes on in from the west and northwest later in the day.  The best chances for snow showers and flurries will be to the city's north and west, thanks to lake enhancement, but we'll keep an eye out through the region as any one location could see snow showers or flurries after midday.  A better chance of snow showers exists south of the city tonight.

Highs tomorrow will get into the lower to middle 20's, which will be the coldest day of the stretch and the coldest since January 2010 when we only got to 21 for a high on January 30th.  If we fail to reach 22 (22 is our projected high), then this becomes the coldest since January 2009 when it only got to 18.
