Tonight will be cold but not as cold as we have a south wind overnight. Expect lows down in the single digits with wind chills -5 to zero degrees Tuesday morning.

Tuesday afternoon will bring temperatures just at or slightly above freezing! It will feel like a heat wave! We'll have a strong southwest breeze though which will make it feel like 10 to 15 degrees in the middle part of the day.

Our next chance of snow will be Thursday when a wave moves across the area. Temperatures for highs this week will be in the 30s until the weekend. Christmas Eve looks to bring a chance of rain as does Christmas Day. We'll have to watch this storm system carefully as any change in the track of the low-pressure system and timing could mean a wintry mix. --Danielle Dozier
