Even though our air temperature will generally remain in the balmy (sarcasm, noted) teens, our wind chill will make things feel downright frigid over the next couple of days. Tonight’s low temperature will dip down to 10 degrees, with some single digits in far northwest Illinois thanks to thinning cloudcover. Factor in a northwest wind, sustained between 5 and 15 miles per hour, and our wind chill will fall below zero from time to time.
Friday and Saturday’s highs will struggle to reach 20 degrees—colder than today. Overnight lows will fall into the single digits. Wind chill values will range between 10 below and 10 above during this timeframe. Have those kids bundled up for school tomorrow!
