Morning Lows This Weekend

It hasn't felt like early January for many from the northern Plains to the East, but the next several mornings will be cold across New England and New York State.

Colder-than-average temperatures spread into the East behind a departing low-pressure system late this past week. This has resulted in below-average high and low temperatures for portions of the East, especially the Northeast.

Low temperatures could dip below zero and up to 25 degrees colder than average in parts of northern New York and northern New England.

When factoring in the wind, it may feel as cold as 20 degrees below zero at times late this week into the weekend. A few remote spots may see wind chills as cold as minus 30. Temperatures that low can result in frostbite in as little as 30 minutes.

Wind chill advisories have been issued across northern New England and northern New York.


Current Wind Chills

Lows will drop into the teens and 20s across the rest of the Northeast and Midwest.

The cold temperatures will persist in the Northeast, and high temperatures may not reach the freezing mark from Boston to Philadelphia through the weekend.
