It's cold outside, real cold.
There's really no way around the temperatures which fell below record levels early in the morning officially putting Wednesday morning in the history books.
A part of the reason behind the the drop in temperatures was crystal clear skies which will continue into the first half of the day on Wednesday meaning plenty of sunshine.
We'll need every ray of sun to help temperatures hit the 50 degree mark, but with a light breeze the wind chill will likely stick in the upper 40s.
Clouds slowly arrive through the afternoon and eventually thickening up through the overnight hours.
These clouds will accomplish two different things, the first will be to keep temperatures in the upper 30s and also bring in a round of light rainfall.
Temperatures will stay well above the level needed for winter type precipitation so while there's cold rain expected it will stay liquid rain and roads won't be freezing.
Showers will ease up in the afternoon and after a gloomy Thursday we'll see plenty of sunshine through the end of the week and the weekend.
