A cold front will dive through the state overnight and bring with it some real cold conditions. The biggest problem will be the wind, as strong north winds are expected for several hours behind the frontal passage. There’s a wind advisory in effect from 8pm tonight until 6am on Saturday morning for the western third of the state. Winds are expected to be sustained around 30mph with gusts over 40mph. Of course, these being north winds, they’ll be real cold. The wind chill in the northwest, northcentral, and westcentral part of the state could easily be in the teens overnight. In the metro, we’re calling for the wind chill to be in the lower 20s, perhaps upper teens at times.
The coldest morning will actually be on Sunday as lows will dip well into the teens north, and low 20s everywhere else. Thankfully, the winds will not be nearly as strong.
