The coldest air of the year and possibly the Winter 2018-2019 season will start to arrive Thursday and we'll really feel the dangerously cold air Thursday night into Friday. Long range models have consistently shown a major cool down arriving Thursday night and sticking around through Friday and possibly the rest of the weekend.
While overnight lows will be tweaked between now and then, we're confident that they'll range between 15 and 25 degrees below zero with even colder wind chill values. Expected wind chill values will range between 30 and 40 degrees below zero; with temperatures and wind chill values THAT cold, frostbite can set in within 10 to 30 minutes.
