LOCAL FORECAST AHEAD:

The coldest air we’ve had in a month is making for a brutally cold morning. Single digit temps and wind chills below zero across the area. Bundle up for the morning commute.

Plenty of sunshine over the next week though despite the cooler temperatures. Could see a few pockets of cloud cover. Especially areas south of I-72 and along I-70.

High pressure across the Midwest will keep our weather pattern very calm over the next week. Could see our next chance for rain beyond the 7 day closer to the start of next week.
