Low temperatures and windy conditions will make the next couple of days feel extremely cold in Whatcom County.

The National Weather Service has taken lowland snow out of the forecast for Tuesday, Nov. 24. Temperatures will rise to about 39 degrees in Bellingham by 11 a.m. Tuesday, then start dropping. Sustained winds around 25 mph, with gusts to 39 at times, will make it feel even colder.

Stronger winds will be felt in certain areas, including Lummi Island, according to the NWS.

Nighttime temperatures Tuesday and Wednesday will fall into the mid- to low 20s.

The weather will warm up, relatively speaking, on Thanksgiving with an expected high of 42 in Bellingham and a nighttime low of 28.
