Risky wind chills Saturday morning - cold here to stay

Holiday weekend looks cold & potentially snowy

Temperatures will remain well below average today, with highs only forecast to be in the mid single digits. It will be around right through New Year's with wind chills that could dip below zero.

Meteorologist Steve Rubin of the National Weather Service in Cheyenne said the first cold front was expected Friday night and into early Saturday morning. "Feels like" temperatures will be in the single digits due to the wind, which will gust as high as 15-25 mph throughout the celebratory hours. Temps will be around zero degrees when the clock strikes twelve on New Year's Eve, and when you wake-up on New Year's Day - those temps will be approaching -10°. Single-digit wind chills will start the day without much warming by the afternoon. It appears that we will get cold enough to see at least a mix of rain and freezing rain Sunday afternoon.

We will see a slow warming trend to close out next week as highs return to the middle 40s by Friday with lows back to only the middle 20s by Friday morning.

Increasing clouds with some snow possible toward dawn, especially west. Afternoon readings were generally in the mid to upper 30s, the warmest levels since before last weekend.

While many states up north are freezing, Florida has a few days to spare before feeling the frosty breath of this cold front. It's the very best way to get an up-to-the-minute forecast on-the-go! A northwest wind could gust to 40 miles per hour.

We're tracking one more "mild" day across Northeast Kansas before yet another cold blast rolls in.

By the time the fireworks light up Baltimore skies, temperatures will have tumbled to near 10 degrees. The agency warned that "an extended period of these temperatures could cause significant damage to sensitive vegetation, potential for freezing and bursting of outdoor pipes".
