Chilly air will hang on for another day, especially in areas east of Interstate 29, where gusty north-northwest winds will make it feel even colder through today. Warmer air will begin to spread into the region through tonight, though, and most locations should see temperatures climb 15 to 20 degrees higher on Sunday. The warmer air, along with breezy westerly winds will lead to a very high fire danger Sunday, followed by a chance of showers or isolated thunderstorms moving through the region Sunday night.
