Dangerous wind chills return, staying frigid into the weekend


Arctic High Pressure will continue to build across the region over the next couple days. Coupled with the exiting Nor'easter storm system, winds will be picking up, with dangerous wind chills at the bus stop tomorrow morning.

Wind chills will drop well below zero overnight, with areas anywhere from 10 to 20 below.

Along with blustery winds, temperatures will be taking a tumble. Some areas may even drop below 0 degrees by Friday morning.

We will deal with these brutal wind chills through much of the morning on Friday as winds remain on the breezy side.

Temperatures will only climb into the teens during the afternoon tomorrow, with subzero wind chills carrying through the rest of the day.

Heading into the weekend, frigid air will still be locked in for the day on Saturday. Skies will gradually clear, allowing for some sunshine to help combat the cold. The next couple days are going to be very cold, so make sure you are properly dressed to be outside during these harsh conditions. Not only should you take care of yourself but make sure you keep your pets warm, too.

Much needed relief from the cold will move in on Sunday and into the new week as temperatures climb into the 30's. This will be the first time we will be above freezing since Christmas Eve. There will be a price to pay, though. A storm system will be bringing snow and rain into the new week which could set up for a messy commute Monday. Stay tuned for the latest!
