Colder weather returns for the next few days, then much warmer for the weekend

Remaining Ad Time Ad - 00:00

TODAY: The system that brought snow on Monday moves east and an arctic high will settle in. We'll see partly sunny skies and a breezy WNW to NW wind at 10-20 mph. Highs range from around 10 north to near 20 south. The breezy winds will keep wind chill values in the single digits above and below.

TONIGHT: The high will slowly push southeast, which will clear the skies and calm the winds a touch, but it'll be a frigid night. Winds trend WNW to NW at 8-15 mph, but will slowly calm throughout the night. Lows will drop into the single digits and teens below, but 20s below are even possible north if the winds calm enough.

WEDNESDAY: The high will continue to sit over the eastern Dakotas. We'll see sunny skies and a W to WNW wind at 5-15 mph. It'll be cold however, with highs in the single digits to low teens. Skies remain clear into Wednesday night with a light WNW to NW wind, so temps will plummet yet again. Lows drop into the single digits and teens below once again, but 20s below are possible in spots.

THURSDAY: The sunny skies continue as the high centers itself over Iowa. A warm front will also approach from the west, so it'll be a warmer day. Winds will be breezy out of the W to SW, helping bring in the warmer air. Highs are in the mid-teens to low 20s with lows in the single digits.

FRIDAY: Skies remain sunny once again, and the combination of the warm front passing through and the high centering itself over the central U.S. will bring in even warmer air. Winds will be breezy out of the SW with highs soaring into the mid to upper 30s.

WEEKEND: The weekend looks spectacular with sunny to mostly sunny skies and warm temperatures. Highs top out in the mid 30s to low 40s, with lows in the upper teens to mid 20s.

EARLY NEXT WEEK: Clouds begin to increase into early next week, but the mild temperatures stick around. Models diverge on a possible system towards the middle of the week, so we'll watch that as time draws closer. Highs remain in the 30s, with 40s possible Monday.
