If you thought this weekend was cold... it was just a taste of what is to come. After our system moves through by Wednesday, colder air is quickly going to pour in from the northwest and cool down the area rapidly. Temperatures are going to quickly drop well below zero starting Thursday which means that overnight Thursday into Friday... our low temperatures may between 10 and 20 degrees below zero for an air temperature. Even with a little bit of wind... our wind chill values are going to be even colder. This may be some of the, if not the, coldest air of the season. Make sure that you're dressing appropriately, covering up as much skin as possible and limiting your time as well as your pets time outdoors.
Unfortunately that air looks to stick around throughout the upcoming weekend and long range models suggest another round of Arctic air may follow that. Stay with ABC 6 News for the updated forecast.
