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.
