"As we continue through this extended period of bitter cold temperatures, we must take precautions and ensure that services are available to protect the most vulnerable populations", said Malloy. With these dangerously cold wind chills, a Wind Chill Warning has been issued for most of interior New England through tomorrow, as well as a Wind Chill Advisory for areas closer to the coastline. The alert is released when wind chills are expected to be 10 to 20 degrees below zero. The high Saturday is expected to be around 11 degrees and wind gusts of 30 to 40 miles per hour are possible at any point into the evening, though the winds will die down overnight, Quinlan said. Highs will only reach the mid 20s tomorrow afternoon with wind chill values in the low teens.
The coldest wind chills will occur Thursday night through Saturday morning. Isolated spots could see 2 inches as the snow is very fluffy and light, causing it to accumulate fast.
We warm a bit each day next week. Heading into the afternoon, wintry mix chances move in as highs hover around the freezing mark.
Sunday will be mostly cloudy with a high of 27. Highs: 5-9 / Winds: WNW 10-20 and wind chills fro 30 below early to 10 below late in the day. Near 50° temps are expected for Tuesday.
