Arctic Weekend

Arctic air is coming back for the weekend.  Another Arctic air mass is building into the area tonight.  The weather will be cloudy and blustery with temperatures dropping to near or below zero by morning and then staying there all day Saturday.  Brisk northerly winds 1q0-25 mph will create wind chill readings into the minus 20s late tonight and all day Saturday.  Saturday night looks extremely cold, with temperatures to around minus 20 or lower likely.  Expect a subzero high temperature Sunday.  Meteorologist John Wheeler
