Baby, it's cold outside.

Biting, brutal cold with daytime "high" temperatures Tuesday barely inching into the double digits and the overnight low expected to fall near zero -- and wind chill values registering in the minus-teen range because of a bone-chilling west wind 11 to 21 mph, with gusts as high as 38 mph, according to the National Weather Service.

Wednesday is expected to be a little "warmer," although temperatures will be well below freezing. Skies will be sunny again, but the high temperature will be in the low-20s, the NWS predicts, and the daytime wind chill could feel as low as minus-8 degrees.

Wednesday Sunny, with a high near 22. Wind chill values as low as -8 degrees. Nighttime will be cloudy, with temperatures in the mid-teens.

Things start to warm up a bit by Thursday, as the daytime high is expected to rise to just about the freezing level in the low-30s.

But there is a slight chance of snow overnight Thursday into Friday morning -- 20 percent odds, according to the weather service.
