Bitterly cold air on the way

The coldest weather so far this season is expected at the end of the week

Posted: Jan 27, 2021 5:06 PM

Arctic air is expected to return to Central New York as we head into the end of the week. The source of this air comes from the north pole, meaning it's going to bring bitterly cold temperatures to the region. The cold air starts to settle in Thursday, with the core of the cold air expected on Friday. While this isn't expected to break any temperature records, it will be a shock to the system, since we really haven't had cold weather like this so far this winter.

Temperatures start heading down tonight, with cloudy skies and overnight lows in the low teens. Tomorrow, temperatures are only expected to stay in the teens, with a north wind developing. The winds will gust between 15-25 mph, bringing wind chills into the lower single digits. Remember, wind chill is a calculated temperature to illustrate how quickly heat is removed from the body due to wind. Windy days can shorten the time for frostbite, so dress in layers and cover exposed skin!

The core of the cold weather settles in Friday, with highs only in the single digits. The coldest night is expected to be Friday night, with overnight lows as cold as -10 to -20 across the region. Make sure you bring in your pets during these bitterly cold temperatures and limit your time outdoors.
