Good Evening! Although we have been dealing with a bit of cloud cover, temperatures have warmed nicely into the 30s and 40s. With the clouds in place tonight, temperatures will remain mild. Low near 34* with a west wind at 10-20 mph. The clouds will continue to stick around for Monday, and it will be mild once again. High near 44* with a northwest wind at 10-25 mph.
A cold front will sweep through late Monday, which will knock temperatures down about 10-15 degrees for Tuesday and Wednesday. As the front passes, there could be some light rain or snow showers, mainly south of I-94. Another surge of warm air will come Thursday, with highs returning to the 40s. Temperatures will remain above average right on into next weekend.

Differences Between the new and old systems
- Wind speed is now calculated for 5 feet off the ground. Wind speed was previously based on observations at 33 feet.
- The calm wind threshold was lowered to 3mph.
- A consistent standard for skin tissue resistance is now in use.
- Measurements are based on how wind affects the human face, typically the most exposed portion of the body.
- The table incorporates the theory that heat is lost from the body depending on its surroundings
- The sun's impact is not factored into the wind chill temperature formula.
