DETAILED FORECAST

WEDNESDAY: A frigid morning with temperatures near zero and wind chills ranging between 10 below zero and 20 below zero. Clouds are expected to gradually increase through the day as a cold front approaches from the north, Vrydaghs said. Temperatures will reach highs near 20 degrees but wind chills will make it feel like the single digits. A few passing snow flurries or snow showers are possible towards the late afternoon and evening. “We’re not expected much more snow to stick than a possible dusting in some spots,” Vrydaghs said. Overnight lows will fall back into the lower single digits but will feel close to zero.

Lows will be below zero by Friday morning.
