Temps will top out around 56 degrees before dipping down to 24 degrees at night. Expect wind chills around 10 degrees. On Saturday, wind gusts could be as strong as 30 miles per hour, putting the wind chills as low as the teens, according to Engle. Nighttime temperatures will drop to a low of 23 degrees.
