High temperatures Saturday will be in the middle and upper teens with partly sunny skies. Winds will be strong out of the west-northwest around 15-25 mph. Wind gusts will be close to 30-35 mph at times. This will cause wind chills to drop into the lower single digits and below 0° through most of the afternoon. Temperatures will improve Sunday with highs warming into the upper 20s and lower 30s. Winds will shift to the south around 10-20 mph.

High temperatures will stay in the upper 20s and lower 30s through most of next week. Overnight lows are expected to improve too with lows in the upper teens and the middle 20s by Tueday and Wednesday nights. Highs on Thanksgiving will be around the freezing point with our next system moving into the upper Midwest. Confidence is extremely low at this point for next week’s system, but it will be something to keep an eye on early next week.

Have a great weekend.
