Enter the big chill.

Instead of rising, temperatures will dip throughout the day, into the 30s this afternoon and the 20s tonight.

High winds with gusts of up to 45 mph also will make it feel colder under partly sunny skies.

The National Weather Service said intense low pressure over Eastern Canada and a high pressure system building from the Great Plains are the meteorological factors behinds today's chilly factors.

Tomorrow it will be sunny and brisk with highs only in the lower 30s and winds of 15 to 20 mph, gusting to 30 mph.

It could get up to 40 on Saturday and on Sunday there is a chance of snow and rain.
