Warmer air moves in Thursday along with gusty westerly winds. Winds will start off at 15 mph in the morning from the west, increasing to near 20 mph in the afternoon with occasional gusts as high as 35 mph. It will be a warmer day with high temperatures briefly reaching the low to mid 40s.

Another fast moving cold front will bring clouds, snow flurries and bitter cold air Thursday night, dropping temperatures to the low 10s by Friday morning with wind chills as low as 5 below zero.

We'll have a blustery day Friday with high temperatures only reaching the low-to-mid 20s. Northwesterly winds at 20 mph in the morning will drop to near 10 mph by evening. The winds will give us single digit wind chills during the day.
