Another Blast of Arctic Air Will Arrive For The New Year

A warming trend returns through Thursday with highs back in the 20s and 30s before yet another shot of cold air comes through to round out the year 2017 as highs cool back down in the teens as we head into the upcoming weekend including New Year's Eve next Monday.

Saturday will see temperatures in the mid-20s, with mainly cloudy skies. Get this... Monday (Christmas) high temperatures were above freezing, that was likely the last time for highs to be above 32... until after the start of the new year.

It's much trickier to track down wind chill records, so we can just tell you that Thursday will bring in some potentially dangerously cold weather. Still, I wouldn't be surprised if this system ends up clicking back to the north and west toward us again as we approach late week, many similar ones do, though we're probably talking about a light snow event if it does, not big numbers.

Temperatures the next several days are well below normal in the 20s. Wind chill values will make many locations feel like the teens in many spots tomorrow.

Today for Christmas we'll have mostly cloudy with highs in the mid 20s-mid 30s and winds W/E 5-10 miles per hour. A scattered snow chance will continue through the day on Saturday with the best chances still remaining north. A weak disturbance rolling in behind the front on Sunday though could offer enough lift for a few light snow showers Sunday afternoon and evening. Friday will be the "warmer" day as we reach the upper 20s. That has happened. We will continue to monitor this. Tuesday will feature an area of high pressure and sunshine!

Friday are in the lower and middle teens. It will be a bit windy, as that northwest wind delivers the colder air.
