Today, with winds out of the west at 10-20 miles per hour and gusts in the 30-40 miles per hour range, we'll have brutally cold wind chills with some spots, especially northern New England, the Berkshires, and even in Central Massachusetts, with wind chills nearing 30 to 40 below. Actual temperatures will be staying in the single digits and low teens for high temperatures on Saturday.
The NWS issued a wind chill advisory until 8 a.m. Sunday for Fairfield, New Haven, Middlesex and New London counties.
Temperatures will rise to around 15 by Sunday morning. We are trending warmer for the end of the week as a pattern shift finally occurs and our January thaw is looking more and more likely.
It's one thing to battle the cold, it's another thing to battle the cold with a gusty wind that's pushing 40mph.
Very cold air and gusty winds will create unsafe wind-chill temperatures into the night and through Friday. Skies are mostly cloudy throughout the day with winds at 5-10MPH out of the south.
Monday will be sunny with a high of 29.
Milder weather will move in early next week with highs back into the 40s. Highs in the upper 20s. Even the slightest breeze will bring wind chills to -30 easily.
