Wears coat everyday

We done bit off a chunk today. What can we say? It's brutally cold, made worse
by a bit of moisture, and it's not getting any better for awhile. We'll start you
off with Friday's forecast; maybe you'll feel better.

But right now, those 50s are just a dream (save for the southeast...for a few
more hours). The strongest (coldest) air of the season is plunging through the
state, fed by air crossing over the polar region. Here are a few maps to show
the front's progression, and current misery index. Notice the wind chill map is
a bit sparse up in the northwest due to some freezing drizzle messing up our
wind anemometers. Regular air temp sensors are fine.

All of this is made worse by the perfectly lovely weekend weather we had, with
highs in the 70s and 80s. 'Tis but a dream now. Let's not forget that wind. Your
face doesn't care that our anemometers are frozen. It only cares that IT'S
frozen. Winds howling out of the north from 40-60 mph will speed that numbing
process along pretty quickly.

Watch for record lows tomorrow. Well, feel for them I guess, when you walk
outside if you are that unfortunate. Otherwise, plenty of sunshine for the
rest of the week. Just get by today, somehow someway!
