Good Evening! Although we have been dealing with a bit of cloud cover, temperatures have warmed nicely into the 30s and 40s. With the clouds in place tonight, temperatures will remain mild. Low near 32* with a west wind at 10-20 mph. The clouds will continue to stick around for Monday, and it will be mild once again. High near 40* with a northwest wind at 10-25 mph.
A cold front will sweep through late Monday, which will knock temperatures down about 10-15 degrees for Tuesday and Wednesday. As the front passes, there could be some light rain or snow showers, mainly south of I-94. Another surge of warm air will come Thursday, with highs returning to the 40s. Temperatures will remain above average right on into next weekend.

- The calm wind threshold was lowered to 3mph.
- A consistent standard for skin tissue resistance is now in use.
- Measurements are based on how wind affects the human face, typically the most exposed portion of the body.
- The table incorporates the theory that heat is lost from the body depending on its surroundings
- The sun's impact is not factored into the wind chill temperature formula.
