Relative humidity is 30% which indicates the dry air over the area indicating few clouds for tonight and tomorrow. Winds are currently out of the northwest at 17 mph making the current temperature of 27 degrees Fahrenheit feel like 19. For tomorrow, surface high pressure will be dominating the area, winds out of the northwest at 11 mph with a morning low of 15 with a wind chill at 8.
