Patrick Rockey’s Live VIPIR Forecast

Fasten your seat belts, our weather roller coaster is headed down again!

A fast-moving cold front will swing through the region tonight. With it we may see a stray shower or even a snowflake or two.

But the skies will clear quickly and the temperatures will drop. It will be sunny, cold and windy when you wake up on Wednesday morning. Expect wind chill values in the teens and high temperatures in the afternoon only in the upper 30s.

But the roller coaster heads back up through the rest of the work week and into the weekend. We’ll climb into the lower 50s on Thursday with plenty of sunshine and into the upper 50s on Friday.

A few showers are possible late Friday and into early on Saturday. It looks like we will warm up into the lower 60s on Saturday before another cold front knocks us back down into the 40s or Sunday and for Martin Luther King Day on Monday.
