January 23rd, 2013 Forecast

Tonight is going to be the coldest night of this cold stretch of weather.  Lows will drop into the low teens in the city, but the suburbs will very likely be in the single digits by daybreak.  With west-northwest winds at 10 to 20 mph, wind chills will be between 0 and 10 below early Wednesday morning.

A very cold day is expected Wednesday.  Look for a mix of sun and clouds, but winds will continue to be 10 to 20 mph out of the west-northwest.  Highs will be 20-25 in the city, but some suburbs may not even hit 20.  Wind chills will be between 0 and 10 above in the afternoon.

Thursday will be a few degrees warmer, but it'll still be cold in the upper 20s with wind chills 10 to 20.  We continue to keep a close eye on the potential nor'easter for Friday.  As of right now, it looks like snow will move in sometime Friday afternoon or Friday evening.  This will likely be an all snow event, but all we can tell you right now is that you might want to have the shovel handy.

A leftover snow shower is possible Saturday, and then we will start a gradual warming trend, so if you're not a fan of this cold weather just hang in there for a few more days.
