Mild weather today, dangerously cold this holiday weekend

Holiday weekend looks cold & potentially snowy

Warmer by Saturday, then very cold for start of 2018

A weak coastal storm will brush CT.

Today, we're expecting highs to be near average. Snow will start between 9am and noon across most of the state.

"How cold the weather has gotten, now I'm going to leave our bathroom faucet running again", says Theroux. The snow will be light and fluffy and with the cold temperatures some roads could become slippery rather quickly. Temperatures will remain mired in the 20s with wind chills in the single digits and 10s.

By New Year's Day, much of the Deep South will feel the Arctic breeze, Kottlowski said. Morning wind chill values will likely be in single digits with some spots seeing values close to zero.

A strong arctic cold front will move through North and Central Texas Saturday with temperatures falling Saturday night and into New Year's Eve. Overnight lows will range from -10 to +5 on the thermometer!

New Year's Day is predicted to have a high of only 25 degrees, which would be the coldest since 1940 and the sixth coldest New Year's Day on record.

Thursday proved to be one of the coldest December days in almost 10 years. High temperatures have been in the 20s most of this week with wind chills in the single digits.

Wind Chills at or below Zero New Years Eve night.

The mercury won't even rise to zero on Saturday and Sunday in Minneapolis, according to AccuWeather.

Tuesday will be a little better, but still very cold. Wind: Light and variable. It appears that we will get cold enough to see at least a mix of rain and freezing rain Sunday afternoon. This would be the worst case scenario as that much ice accumulation could bring down tree branches and power lines and cause widespread power outages as the brutal cold arrives. Highs will be in the upper 20s and lower 30s!
