Another wintry blast of cold air will lead to a frigid start to the week

A blast of cold air settles into the Midwest Monday & Tuesday.

The new week will be greeted with another blast of wintry cold as Canadian air will settle into the upper Midwest with high temperatures more typical of mid-January.

Monday will be very similar to the weather this last Saturday. There will be more clouds than sun with skies generally partly sunny.

As the cold air gets locked in temperatures will struggle to climb out of the 20s for highs. Winds will be brisk at times out of the northwest making it feel much colder with wind chills likely in the teens throughout the day.

Monday night there will be some clearing as high pressure builds overhead allowing temperatures to drop into the teens with wind chills likely in the single digits to zero and maybe below in the north. BRRR!

It will be the time to dig out any winter accessories such as the heavy coat, gloves, hat, scarf, etc.

The cold blast will be short lived as improvements arrive thereafter.

The flow turns to the southwest Wednesday and Thursday leading to much warmer weather and a couple blustery days. High temperatures will be closer to normal in the 40s on Wednesday and Thursday under mainly sunny skies.
