Except for a very brief warm-up Sunday, temperatures in our area are likely to stay below the historical averages of 32 and 53 degrees into Wednesday.

Even for January, it is going to be cold.

Wake-up Saturday will see temperatures in the low 20s with wind chills in the upper teens. Those numbers are repeated overnight Monday but then bested overnight Tuesday. By Wednesday sunrise, lows should be around 20 with wind chills in the mid-teens.

Daytime highs are expected to stall out in the low 40s Saturday, the mid-40s Monday and the mid-30s Tuesday.

The only precipitation through Tuesday is scheduled to arrive late Sunday and leave by Monday morning. It should be all liquid since Sunday’s high is forecast to get into the low 60s followed by around 40 overnight.
