Cold and gray to wrap up the week

Thursday’s cold front has now come and gone, but the effects from that front will linger on into the beginning of the weekend.

The most notable side effect from that front is the wind which is kicking around at a blustery 20-25 mph with gusts up to around 30-35 mph.

As a result of that wind we will see the wind chill sitting in the upper 30s and low 40s through the day giving us a reminder that it still is February.

Clouds, more or less, are locked in place to wrap up the work week so with limited sunshine temperatures will certainly struggle.

The weekend will be pretty quiet with slow gradual clearing by Saturday afternoon although it will stay chilly during the first half of the weekend.

It will then warm into the 70s by Sunday as winds shift from the south bringing in warm, moist air and sending temperatures back close to 80 to start the work week.
