A warm, but breezy wind has helped increase the temperature into the 40s today and it will also keep lows quite mild overnight under clearing skies. Sunday morning starts close to freezing so it will be another great day to be outdoors with highs in the mid-40s. It will be mostly sunny for the balance of daylight so that will help battle the chill the wind tries to bring.
Monday will see the clouds rolling back in and the majority of the day will be dry, albeit colder with highs in the upper 30s due to the clouds and the wind turning to the northeast. Snow moves in late Monday night and into Tuesday and some spots in the southeast may even have sleet and some raindrops mixing in heading into Tuesday with highs climbing a bit above freezing. All snow is expected on the back side of this area of low pressure passing to our south on Tuesday night and into Wednesday, allowing the wind to kick up from the north and pull down colder air for the rest of the week. The highest snow totals will be closer to the Illinois state line as the heart of this system looks to be to our south, just clipping the north.
Thursday starts with teens for morning temperatures, climbing only into the mid-20s by the afternoon but it will feel colder with a breezy wind. Friday is a near repeat forecast with mostly sunny skies, lows in the teens and highs in the 20s. We start to get closer to average as we head into the weekend, which looks dry with highs in the 30s at this point.
