Area Forecast Discussion
National Weather Service Chicago/Romeoville, IL
534 PM CST Mon Jan 30 2023
.SHORT TERM… Issued at 210 PM CST Mon Jan 30 2023
Through Tuesday night…
A large center of high pressure encroaching from the northwest will keep the short term forecast quiet, but awfully cold. The persistent cold advection from said high has prevented temperatures today from warming more than a few degrees from early this morning, even in northwest Chicagoland where they`ve been gifted with a fair amount of sunshine so far today. Early this afternoon, the area is sitting in the upper single digits and teens. However, a decent breeze out of the northwest is keeping wind chills in the single digits below zero across most areas. The aforementioned sunshine is slowly creeping across the CWA this afternoon as a pesky stratus deck is taking its time sneaking out of here. The southern CWA may not even see clearing until after sundown. Nonetheless, the area should see mostly clear skies through evening and night, aiding in the bitter cold conditions in store for tonight and early tomorrow.
Temperatures around daybreak tomorrow are forecast in the single digits south of I-80 down to the double digits below zero in spots across the Rockford metro and surrounding areas. With the high centering itself over northern Illinois tomorrow morning, winds tonight into the morning should be very light, if not calm for several hours over the northwest CWA. Therefore, wind chills shouldn`t depart too far from actual temperatures. Minimum wind chills are forecast to drop near -20 degrees in spots across the northwest CWA. Opted out of a wind chill advisory for tonight given the overall lack of wind and widespread wind chills expected to be slightly warmer than advisory criteria.
Tomorrow will see similar temperatures to today with highs in the teens. Wind chills through the better part of the day are expected to be in the single digits on either side of 0. Modest warm air advection in the return flow of the departing high will bring slightly warmer conditions for tomorrow night. Lows will be in the single digits to slightly below zero with wind chills as low as the teens below zero.
