Posted at 6:42 AM, Jan 30, 2019

Brutal cold air has arrived this morning. Temperatures and wind chill will likely bottom out after sunrise this morning. Wind chills fall into the -50s and a few spots may even reach -60. This is extremely dangerous cold. Please do not go outside unless you have to. By this afternoon, we should warm up to around -13 and wind chills will be around -40.

It's going to be another bitter cold night tonight. In fact, actual temperatures may actually be colder inland, but the wind chill won't be quite as bad. Lows tonight will range from around -20 lakeside and minus upper 20s inland. Wind chills range from -35 to -45. Some light snow is possible Thursday night, but only a dusting is expected. We then start warming up Friday and into the weekend. We may actually be above freezing by Saturday.
