Sabrina Ullman: Strong winds continue through Saturday
Today will be sunny and cold, with afternoon highs close to zero. A northwest wind of 20-30 mph could have gusts of 45 mph. This will not only cause a continuation of our bitter cold wind chills but also have other impacts such as blowing snow reducing visibility and the potential for more power outages.
The wind will slow down slightly tonight, becoming 15-20 mph after midnight. Overnight lows will be in the negative teens along the Iron Range and north. Elsewhere, we stay close to zero.
Christmas Day will have afternoon highs in the positive single digits and a calmer northwest wind of 5-15 mph. As the wind improves, we will see an end to lake-effect snow on the South Shore by midday Sunday.
A warming trend is on its way- temperatures reach the thirties starting Wednesday.
