A strong, but dry cold front will move through the area Tuesday afternoon. Winds will be gusty from the southwest with temps climbing to the upper 50s. Much colder air will move in as the sun sets with temps falling to the mid 20s by sunrise Wednesday. Wind chills will tumble to the upper teens after midnight.
Morning lows in the mid 20s will only reach the upper 30s by mid afternoon. Winds will be a concern as well, with wind speeds ranging between 10-22 mph out of the northwest. This will make the warmest temps of the day feel more like the upper 20s. Overnight lows will fall to the low to mid 20s as we wake up Thursday morning.
