Greensboro, NC -- Arctic air will continue to spill into the Triad Tuesday night and drop temperatures colder than where they have been all season.
Under the dominance of high pressure, centered to the northwest, the sky will remain mostly clear tonight which will make for ideal cooling conditions. A clear sky combined with a relaxing wind and the continued push of colder air from the northwest will enable temperatures to quickly cool through the 20s and eventually bottom out in the upper teens early Wednesday morning.
Even though the winds will be lessening through the night even a 5 mph wind could combine with late night temperatures to drop wind chill values into the upper single digits.
The dry air associated with the cold temperatures, however, will prevent the development of frost despite the frosty-like feel.
The sunshine will return Wednesday morning which will help temperatures rebound somewhat through the afternoon. High cloud cover will slowly increase over the Triad later in the day which will prevent temperatures from warming as much as they otherwise would have under a completely sunny sky. High temperatures Wednesday will be in the upper 30s.
Until this week the coldest temperature the Triad had experienced this season was 21 degrees which occurred on Nov. 25th. The last time temperatures were in the teens across the Triad was on February 13, 2011. The low that day was 19 degrees.
