Snow will continue to taper off this afternoon, with clearing from west to east. The wind will ease just a little bit this evening. Much colder air will move in tonight. Expect lows dipping into the teens under mostly clear skies.  It will still be a bit breezy, so wind chill values will drop below zero by Friday morning.

Afternoon winds chill values will only reach the low teens.

Another cold day on tap for Saturday. Expect highs in the 20s, so the snow will be slow to melt. Temperatures really wont reach the freezing mark until Sunday, with temperatures warming into the 40s on Monday.
