There may even be some scattered snow showers passing through on northwest winds that could gust up to 35 mph. High temperatures should occur around the time of the swearing in at or just above 40 degrees, but the wind chill will be in the low 30s at noon.

The winds will begin to ease up a bit late today and tonight but could still gust to 20 mph.

Overnight temperatures will drop back into the low-to-mid 20s.

Temperatures will moderate back into the upper 40s on Thursday under sunny skies.

Looking toward next week, we’re watching a chance for rain or snow on Monday and Tuesday. We will keep you updated in the days ahead.
