While today's official high temperature of 44° was recorded at 12:00 AM this morning, this afternoon marked our coolest in about nine and a half months; we peaked at just 35° this afternoon. Not only does this afternoon represent our coldest since Valentine's Day, but that chilly weather perpetuated those scattered snow flurries into the early evening. As the snow chances exit the Tri-State, clearer skies will filter back into the region allowing for temperatures to fall even further overnight.
Tuesday morning's low of 25° will be our chilliest recorded in the River City since the morning of March 7th (just under 9 months ago) - worse yet, winds around dawn will still be getting up to 5 or 10 mph, keeping wind chill values near 17° early tomorrow morning! Brrrr. Fortunately, tomorrow afternoon looks slightly warmer - we'll top out in the upper 30s and low 40s area-wide Tuesday under crystal clear skies. That being said, winds gusting as high as 20 mph will keep that high around 39° only feeling as war as 33° or so.
Thankfully, Wednesday look calmer and warmer - we'll tip the scales at 47° (which is just a degree shy of the Dec 2nd norm) that day under clear skies once again. Thursday may bring additional precipitation to the Tri-State as a weaking low swings through the Ohio Valley. It currently looks as though the best chance for precip will occur during the late morning and early afternoon that day- temperatures in the upper 30s and low 40s around that time should ensure that Thursday's event consist of rainfall rather than snow, but we'll continue to watch the situation closely in the coming days.
