The showers will be spotty through the afternoon but the clouds will be blanketing with unbroken, gray skies lasting all the way through Friday and a solid portion of the weekend.

Temperatures are going to sit in the low 40s in the afternoon but the windchill is going to remain down in the low 30s through the rest of the day, the result of strong winds coming from the north around 10-15 mph, gusts slightly higher.

Clouds are going to stick around for the next several days with some patchy sunshine possible Sunday, although those patches will be fleeting and short lived.

Winter weather is going to move back in for the start of the week, with some frozen precipitation possible through the day on Monday.
