Today will be a quieter day as the arctic air mass already packs up and starts to head out.

Winds will turn to the southwest early this morning, cutting off any lingering lake effect snow showers. The wind will also become light, with speeds around 5 mph and gusts around 15 mph.

Still, with temperatures below zero, wind chills will be hazardous through the morning. By the afternoon, the wind chill should be above zero as temperatures rise to near 20 degrees.

The wind will increase this afternoon and especially this evening. Wind speeds will be near or just over 10 mph with gusts to 25 mph.

Skies will be cloudy throughout the day. A few snow showers, triggered by the influx of warmer air, will be possible. No snow accumulation is expected, though.

It will remain cloudy and breezy through the night. Temperatures will dip into the mid and upper 10s this evening, but by dawn Sunday, should be up into the mid 20s.

Here is a look at the weather for the next few days:

Sunday: Mostly cloudy. Sunrise temperatures in the mid 20s. Afternoon highs in the mid 40s.
