EXTENDED FORECAST - The dome of cold air will remain in place over the High Plains for the next couple of days. In fact, we've got another blast of Arctic air that will be moving in today. Temperatures will begin to warm into the late morning. We'll set our high temperature of 42 degrees near lunch time, but once our front moves through shortly thereafter, temperatures will fall fast through the rest of the day. Temperatures will be stationed in the 20s and low 30s for the commute home. By tomorrow morning, air temperatures will be frigid (in the teens). Luckily winds will be fairly light, but when temps are already that cold, it doesn't take much wind to really put a sharp chill in the air. Wind chill values will be in the single digits both above and below zero for Thursday morning. Despite the mix of sun and clouds we'll see on Thursday afternoon, we'll remain extremely cold with a high of 30 degrees. Our warming trend will finally begin on Friday with a high of 45 before we rise into the middle 60s for Saturday. Models are now bringing in our weekend cold front a little sooner (Saturday night into Sunday as opposed to Sunday night into Monday). This one isn't going to be quite as strong as the ones that have moved through early this week, but it will cool highs back to the 50s for Sunday and Monday. Fast moving fronts will continue to pass every couple of days sending highs up and down very quickly next week. While we'll see the impacts of these fronts when it comes to our temperatures, all of them will be coming through dry with no rain or snow expected.
