Dangerously cold wind chills

Widespread fresh snow cover over the entire Midwest coupled with clear to partly cloudy at night and an Arctic air mass moving in from Canada will lead to the coldest weather of this early winter season. This may require the issuance of a wind chill advisory. Wind chills are expected to drop to 20 degrees below zero on Saturday, and on Monday forecasted wind chills could fall between 20 and 30 degrees below zero.

At times there has been a noticeable wind, giving us a wind chill value ranging form positive to negative numbers. Monday's high will reach 16 degrees, with a low of 1.

Sunday, partly sunny, with a high near 11.

"The lower numbers will more likely be for more rural areas at night".

Mostly sunny and colder.

Temperatures are expected to stay below zero throughout the holiday weekend.

These cold wind chills will cause frost bite in as little as 30 minutes to exposed skin.

That advisory expires at midnight Eastern on Sunday night. A Wind Chill Advisory will be in effect during the day, but a Wind Chill Warning will go into effect Sunday night at 9:00 and will last until Tuesday.

Fri: Hi: 28 Lo: 13 Sunny. There's the chance of some light snow or flurries, especially farther east across New Jersey, but the brunt of the storm may stay just off the coast and perhaps clip eastern New England instead. Hang in there, for a long stretch of incessant cold continues indefinitely.
