Feel The Sting
Posted by Pete Bouchard
Cold takes hold tonight. The air that's over us has been festering over a thick snowpack across southeast Canada. The long winter night will do the rest:
Don't look for Mother Nature to give much back tomorrow, either. High temperatures will struggle to meet the mid 20s in most spots. With a light breeze around, the best we'll do for the afternoon for a "real-feel" temperature (better known as the wind chill) will be 15 degrees.
I'm not going to tell you to get used to it though. Tomorrow is the coldest, but it is also the last day we'll spend in the arctic air. Friday sees some moderation in the temperatures thanks to a change in wind direction and the arctic air in retreat.
More or less the same for the weekend. I was optimistic about bringing the numbers to 40 or better, but now I've backed off. Yes, the arctic air will peel back, but it's not looking like a temperature run up at this point.
That could change by the middle of next week. Weather maps are painting a MUCH milder scenario for the entire Eastern United States. It'll be hard to hold this one back.
