Seven Day Forecast

Good Afternoon! It's Friday, but today's weather wont be the greatest... We will see a lot of cloud cover through the day, and the wind will be a big nuisance. Expecting a high near 53*, with a southeast wind at 20-30 mph. Scattered showers will spread into the area overnight, and the wind may pick up a bit. Low near 44*, with a southeast wind at 20-35 mph.

MUCH warmer air moves in for the weekend. Expecting a lot of sunshine on Saturday and Sunday, with highs up into the 60s and possibly lower 70s. Temperatures will be slightly cooler for next week, and there will be a chance for thunderstorms on Wednesday. Even cooler temperatures are expected for the end of next week.

Enjoy the weekend and Happy Easter!

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.
