Wind Chill Advisory expires at noon -- Chills in teens rest of afternoon

After a frigid, subzero start this morning, Wind Chill Advisory expires at noon -- Chills in teens rest of afternoon.

Our Arctic high is sliding south of the Ozarks today. That will put us in a south wind, nudging the very frigid air to our east. While it still won't be terribly warm, it will be "warmer" today. Highs will make it into the 20's with wind chills in the teens. Expect a deck of cloud cover southwest of I-44, more sunshine northeast.



Tonight, skies remain partly cloudy and temperatures will be cold, but on paper not as frigid. Low 13 will feel like single digits to near 0 degrees, just below the criteria for a Wind Chill Advisory -- we are not expecting any headlines tonight.

Tomorrow a front passes early, shifting winds to the NNW and turning them breezy. Gusts will get to 20 to 25 mph, which will have our "warmer" high of 25 feeling like single digits even with sunshine.

A cool shot behind the front and clear skies will tumble temperatures back into the single digits Wednesday night and Thursday morning. 



Thursday will be our last very cold day, highs make it into the 20's with sunshine.

By Friday, the Arctic air starts to retreat well northeast, letting southerly flow warm us up into the middle 30's!

Southerly winds become breezy on Saturday, pushing highs into the upper 30's and lower 40's with sunshine.

A disturbance rolls through on Sunday bringing rain late. For now, it looks like temperatures stay warm enough during the day for precipitation to be all rain, a few flakes might sneak in late overnight but no snow accumulation is expected. 

Monday will be dry with clearing skies and cooler upper 30's.
