Winter Returns

Just one day after some record warmth on Friday with temperatures reaching into the upper 50's, the temperatures have dropped like a rock. Currently, the temperature is 0F (-18C) with a windchill temperature of -20F (-29C). The forecast low had us dropping to +4F tonight, but it seems we've dropped more than what was expected. Wind Chill warnings have been issued until 10am Monday morning. Winds in the 20-30mph range with gusts to 40mph will create wind chills that could reach -36F (-38C). Tomorrow's high temperature is expected to rise to about +15F (-10C) with below zero wind chills. If we just had a good snow pack on the ground the actual air temperatures would be well below zero. Too bad we don't have that snow pack. :-(
