Cold Air Swings in With Biting Wind Chill

13 December 2017

In the Piedmont, look for highs in the upper 40s around Greensboro and the low 50s near Charlotte and Raleigh. Abundant clouds accompanied the seasonable temperatures with a few rain and snow showers scattered about throughout the day.

A Wind Chill Advisory means that cold air and the wind will combine to create low wind chills.

It's brutally cold outside Wednesday morning in the Northeast, with winds gusting close to 40 miles per hour from Washington, D.C.to Boston, producing wind chills in the single digits and teens.

Sunshine may periodically break through the clouds, but that won't stop temperatures from dropping to a dangerously cold low overnight and continuing into Thursday.

Because the storm system is stalling over Quebec the next couple of days, we endure an icy cold wind in New England.

The air remains very cold with a high temperature in the 10s north to 20s south. But with winds still coming out of the north, expect temperatures to feel like the mid to lower teens in some spots.

A lot of the weekend may end up dry, but another system is going to be approaching later Sunday, with a chance of more snow developing at night.

Behind this cold, a new dose of snow is forecast Wednesday into Thursday for the Great Lakes and the Northeast. It will be falling from Pennsylvania to Long Island Wednesday night into Thursday morning. Right now, only a coating to an inch of snow looks possible. We will see the cold relent a bit over the weekend and by early next week as highs rebound and finally top 40 degrees.
