The highest temperatures (mid-40s) of the day were around the 1 a.m. hour and then fell through the day into the low 30s as a cold front moved through.

As the low pressure moves out, the sky will start to clear and give way to the coldest air we've seen all season. Temperatures will dip to the teens as winds begin to relax to 10-15 mph by daybreak Sunday. Wind chills will be in the single digits for many on Sunday morning.
