Colder air is on the way into our region and will usher in cold gusty winds as well Thursday-Friday. An advisory from the National Weather Service said the cold will remain anchored across our region through the Holiday Weekend.
Actions should be taken now in preparation for this bitterly cold arctic air. However, the primary concern at this time will be the extreme cold with a prolonged period of below freezing temperatures into the Christmas weekend.
Weather.com is predicting morning lows Thursday near 12 degrees and Friday and Saturday 19 or 20 degrees. After a cold 23 degree Sunday morning, a warming trend should begin after the first of next week. There is very little chance of rain after Thursday.
