Today’s only weather excitement was a few morning snow flurries. Aside from that, we’ve had sunshine and near normal temperatures, with highs in the mid-40s. Following a cold night, Friday’s a fine-looking day, with more sunshine and temperatures on a fast ascent well into the 40s.

Through Tonight: Clear skies and light winds make for a very cold night. Temperatures quickly dip through the 30s this evening. Early morning lows range from 18-21 in the colder suburbs to 26-29 downtown.

Tomorrow (Friday): A mostly sunny day much like today, but slightly less wind and slightly warmer. Highs range from the mid-to-upper 40s. Those gentle breezes are from the southwest around 5-10 mph.
