Today's daytime highs were 20 to nearly 30 degrees lower than normal. The gusty northerly winds made it feel another 10 to 15 degrees colder. Today's highs ranged from the lower 30s northwest to the lower 40s across the southeast versus the normal mid 50s to lower 60s.
Tonight will be the coldest night of the season so far with low temperatures in the teens and 20s expected. A light breeze will result in wind chill values in the teens area-wide. Clouds should be on the decrease during the overnight hours. Remember to protect pipes and plants and care for outdoor pets.
With the expected arctic air intrusion Wednesday night through Friday, remember to keep the 4 P's in mind for protection against the frigid temperatures expected. Protect pipes, faucets, and sensitive plants, as well as preparing outdoor pets and people without ample heating for the impending chilly weather ahead. Also, shut off sprinklers as they can cause icy patches on roads and sidewalks resulting in injuries! Check your heater to ensure its functioning properly before the cold weather arrives.
A warming trend is expected through the weekend with temperatures warming close to seasonal normals by Sunday. There is a slight chance of showers across the eastern half of the region Saturday night and Sunday.
