The cold air will hold its grasp for just one more night before temperatures warm to above average. Winds have shifted out of the southwest this afternoon which will allow the retreat of the cold air mass in place. Tonight temperatures will drop to around -10 degrees by midnight, but then will slowly warm into day break to above 0 degrees.
