DON’T BE FOOLED BY SATURDAY’S HIGH!
Saturday High 46 degrees at 4:00 PM; Sunday Low at 7 degrees at midnight Sunday/Monday. Or look at it this way: Saturday High 46 at 4:00 p.m. and Monday Low of -2 degrees at 6:00 a.m. — a drop of 48 degrees in 38 hours.
Biggest weather news is that we are headed for our biggest stretch of bitter cold LOWS leading up from overnight Sunday/Monday, Monday/Tuesday, and Tuesday during the day — ALL BELOW ZERO. New Year’s Eve is forecast to bring the lowest temperature at -6 degrees with a wind chill of -24 from about 2:00 p.m. until 8:00 p.m. and then temperatures will rise to bring in New Year’s Day.
