Kids waiting on the bus this morning will need to be thoroughly bundled up! Our Tuesday begins with wind chills in the teens. A warming trend is on the horizon, but we’ll have to be patient for it. Today, highs stay well below normal in mid-30s to near 40. Skies will be sunny with the exception of the South Shore where lake effect cloud cover lingers. The good news is that the lake effect snow machine is finally turning off for South Shore communities.

The weather pattern will continue to be very dry with the next widespread chance for rain not arriving until Sunday night. This quiet period is accompanied by a welcomed warming trend. We have one more frigid night ahead of us with lows in teens and 20s. By Friday, morning temperatures will be above freezing and highs will range from low 50s to near 60. Mild conditions will linger through a comfortable weekend. The warmth peaks on Sunday when 60s and low 70s will be possible.
