Frigid end to 2017

Cold weather continues into the holiday weekend and for the start of the new year!

Two records were broken on Thursday: Record low of -16° (old record -10 1939) and record lowest high of 5° (old record 13 1976). With some cloud cover this morning, it looks like the record low should be safe but it will be close to breaking the lowest high once again, which is 10 degrees. There will be more in the way of cloud cover for today and tonight, as an arctic front slowly moves in. 

Light snow showers develop Saturday by the late morning into the early afternoon. Snow squalls are possible by Saturday evening with the passing of the cold front. Expect a quick burst of heavy snow with reduced visibility. Accumulation looks to be light, between 1 to 2 inches by Saturday night. 


Another blast of cold air just in time for the holiday. Temperatures will struggle to get into the single digits for New Years Eve. The record for lowest high is 3 for Sunday, with the record low sitting at -12. For those heading out for New Years Eve activities, make sure you bundle up! New York City may see the second coldest NYE on record! Cold weather continues for the start of 2018, with temperatures slowly moderating into the teens by the middle of the week.


Since 2017 is coming to an end, we would like to know what you think are the biggest weather stories of the year! #1 goes to Stella with #2 going to the July floods. What would you consider as #3?
