Cold, coldest arriving Monday

Temps start to drop on Friday morning as a cold front moves through. That’s the leading edge of some arctic air that will ultimately descend into the region this weekend into next week.

The coldest of the cold won’t arrive until after the weekend. This is largely in part to a passing storm system and lingering clouds providing that bit of a blanket. Either way, both Saturday and Sunday will be cold.

Monday will be one of the coldest days as we barely crawl our way back above zero. The overnights surrounding will dip well below zero and wind chills as cold as -20 to -30 at times.

The long range overnights are highly subjective to the daily weather conditions and we’ll be monitoring the trends closely. Either way, it looks like a cold setup, at least through next Friday.
