Wind: South 13
Relative Humidity: 75
Good Afternoon! With a bit of cloud cover today, temperatures have slowly warmed into the 20s. Good new though, the warmer air is just off to the west and will move in for tomorrow. With some clouds in place tonight, temperature should remain steady through the night. Low near 22*, with a south wind, shifting west at 5-15 mph. Some clouds will be around to start off Thursday, but it should end up being a sunny to partly cloudy day, and a warm one. High near 43*, with a west wind at 10-20 mph.
Temperatures will turn colder for the weekend. There is a chance we could see some light rain or snow showers on Friday, followed by colder air for Saturday, with highs in the 20s. Luckily, this cold will be short lived, as temperatures will warm back into the 30s and 40s for next week.

Differences Between the new and old systems
- Wind speed is now calculated for 5 feet off the ground. Wind speed was previously based on observations at 33 feet.
- 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.
