Highs will be around 30 and wind speeds from 15 to 20 mph, with gusts up to 45 mph.
The sky’s expected to become partly cloudy tonight with lows around 13.
Sunday’s forecast calls for sunny, but brisk and cold with highs in the mid-20s. Winds 15 to 20 mph with gusts 30 mph. The wind chill will bring temperatures down to -3 degrees.
Monday will be partly sunny with highs in the lowers 30s and that night partly cloudy with lows in the lower 20s.
By Tuesday night and Wednesday, there’s a 40 percent chance of rain, which could melt some of the snow. The highs will also get to the upper 50s, lows in the mid-40s.
Then, the heat turns up with highs in the mid-60s by Friday.
