A chill in the air Tuesday evening as temperatures hold steady in the middle 30s. The chill has a sting to it after 8 straight days of 50° plus weather. The wind chill will lower at times to the lower 20s.
Occasional flurries and a passing snow shower is possible just beyond 12 AM. Tuesday marked the first time that a ‘trace’ of snow has fallen since December 18th, 12 days ago.
Reinforcing cold arrives behind a passing front Wednesday evening sending afternoon temperatures to near freezing Thursday and Friday, New Year’s day. Dress for the cold Thursday night – we could lower into the upper teens to start 2016.
