Friday forecast: Sunny with sub-freezing wind chill

Another day of sun and cold is in the forecast Friday in the Baltimore area, with gusty breezes bringing a sub-freezing wind chill, according to the National Weather Service.

Highs are expected around 40 degrees, but with a steady 10-15 mph westerly wind, gusting to 20-25 mph, it is forecast to feel like the upper 20s and lower 30s, forecasters predict. Mostly clear skies are expected throughout the day and into Saturday.

Lows are expected around freezing, with wind chills reaching the lower 20s overnight.

The winds are forecast to calm slightly for the weekend, with highs around 40 and lows in the mid-30s Saturday.

For the Ravens' playoff game against the Indianapolis Colts at 1 p.m. Sunday, temperatures are forecast in the mid-40s with a 10 mph breeze bringing wind chills in the upper 30s.

There is no immediate end to this seasonable weather pattern, according to the weather service's Baltimore/Washington forecast. The meteorologists' long-term outlook calls for possible "damming" of cold air over the region Tuesday and Tuesday night, and then a cold front moving through the mid-Atlantic from the Great Lakes on Wednesday, Thursday or possibly Friday.

That latter system could bring the region's first good chance for precipitation since a light snowfall Dec. 29, though forecasters are expecting only rain so far.
