Weather: Less windy soon but still cold

Once the cold arrives, it sticks around for several days, but there may be a trade-off that keeps the weather quieter than it could be for New England - dry air.

"Once we drop below freezing on Saturday evening we will not go back above freezing until probably Wednesday", Latimer said. The weather service cautions that overnight Saturday and overnight Sunday, wind chills could be as low as -15 degrees to -20 degrees. If there's any good news about the cold temperatures next week especially starting on Monday is models are trending on plenty of sunshine throughout the week. This may bring a few flurries or a snow shower to the area later in the day, mainly across the Poconos, but no real accumulation is expected as the energy from this disturbance fizzles out over Pennsylvania.

The wind chill in central Pennsylvania will be about 15 to 20 degrees below zero. "Right now, we have forecast wind chills of negative 5 for that night".

The National Weather Service has issued wind chill warnings for central and eastern parts of MA, as well as CT, as wind will dip temperatures dangerously low Wednesday night and through to Thursday morning.

The deep freeze continues on Friday, but it will be a little better than Thursday.




FRIDAY: Bitter Cold. Sub-zero lows possible.

During the extreme cold weather, Boston Mayor Martin J. Walsh has asked that residents check on neighbors who are disabled or elderly, watch for homeless people who might need help, and be careful using space heaters, which can cause fires.

There are also some things you should check to make sure you won't run into any problems once you hit the road.

- If you get wet, immediately change clothes.

TODAY: Mostly sunny, bitterly cold.
