Prolonged Period of Cold Weather

The weather pattern over the next several days will allow for multiple surges of cold air and little variation in temperatures from day to day.  Afternoon highs will generally be in the single digits and teens, with overnight lows falling below zero, especially away from Lake Michigan. Saturday will be the only day where highs are closer to normal. (See detailed temperature forecasts in the tab on the right.)  Wind will also make temperatures feel much colder, with wind chills of 15 to 30 below zero possible, especially during the nights and mornings.  Wind Chill Advisories will be needed at times during this cold stretch of weather.
