Arctic high pressure is parked over the Red river valley and continues to pump very dry and frigid air into the area. Once the high moves we will see a remarkable turnaround in our temperatures next week.
Tonight, will be mainly clear and bitterly cold with a low of 19. Slightly warmer near the coast (20's) and even colder further inland. The wind chill will be between 6 and 12 degrees!
Saturday will be unseasonably cold but better with more sun and less wind with a high of 42.
Christmas Eve will be clear and very cold again with a low of 22.
Christmas Day expect sunny skies, nearly calm winds and not as cold with a high near 50.
Temperatures will reach near 70 here on Tuesday.
