Storm moves out but Arctic cold takes hold

Posted: Updated:

Our powerful nor'easter brought 8-12" of snow for most of us but now the story is the wind and the cold! Be sure to take and slow and allow for lots of extra time this morning. Some roads are snow covered and snow packed!

As the storm continues to strengthen and move north, our winds will continue to whip out of the west-northwest tonight through tomorrow. The storm will also aid in pulling down very cold air from Canada! A Wind Chill Warning remains in effect from this evening through Sunday morning! Wind chills could fall as low as -35!

Our weather headlines will be about the continued breeze and new round of possible record-breaking cold temperatures tomorrow and Sunday mornings. Our weather will actually be dry and fairly quiet with clouds and sun today followed by more sun tomorrow and Sunday as high pressure builds in. Sunday morning, we could all break record lows as some actual temps approach -15 to -20!

Next week begins with moderating temperatures and highs into the 30's.  However, our next (weaker) storm is on the way and clouds increase Monday. This storm is looking more like snow for Monday evening through Tuesday morning, then maybe rain and snow showers mixing Tuesday.  Snow amounts look to be minor. Chilly air returns Wednesday, but temps may moderate Thursday and overall next week is looking much more comfortable!
