Wind Chill Warning Issued, Dangerous Conditions Expected
Mother Nature seems to be enjoying this roller coaster ride she's got us on. What has been one of the mildest winters we've had in a while, turns bitterly cold this weekend.
Maybe it has something to do with Valentines Day, but Mother Nature is sending us an Arctic Blast that definitely will have people snuggling up. Record lows and bitter wind chills will effect Connecticut and New York, with the coldest temperatures slated for Saturday night into Sunday morning.
A Wind Chill Warning is in effect from 4 p.m. Saturday to noon on Sunday. Conditions will include dangerous to potentially life threatening windchills.
Wind chills will be as low as 25 to 30 below due to temperatures of 5 to 10 degrees below zero and winds gusting up to 35 mph.
The good news is the big chill won't last too long. Tuesday temp's are expected to be back up in the mid 50's.
