Expect temperatures around zero to ring in 2018 tonight.


Bitterly cold air and dangerous wind chills are expected as we ring in the new year tonight and for the next couple of days.  Be sure to dress appropriately for the weather, in lots of layers if you will be outside.  Only a short time exposure to the cold can cause frostbite to develop on unprotected skin .


TONIGHT: Scattered clouds and bitterly cold. Low -4  Wind Chills 0 to -20

NEW YEAR’S DAY:  Unseasonably cold.  High in the single digits.  Wind chills  as low as -30 possible.

MONDAY NIGHT:  Bitter cold continues and dangerous wind chills.  Low -7.  Wind chills -10 to -30.

TUESDAY:  Mostly sunny and very cold.  High around 10.  Wind chills -10 to -30

Frigid conditions will continue through Tuesday.  The record low for New Year’s Day is -8 set back in 1968.  We will see a brief warm up on Wednesday before another shot of arctic air moves in for the rest of the week.
