Arctic cold front on the move

Arctic cold front on the move

In fact, you may want to reconsider partying outside this New Year's Eve, given the biting cold and chance for snow in the forecast. At one time, computer models were suggesting this arctic cold front would phase with a strong developing area of low pressure off the Carolina Coast. At midnight, temps will be very close to zero in southern areas and below zero elsewhere with frigid wind chills in the double digits below zero.

Some of the bitterly cold air that has been plaguing the Midwest will head southward and should begin to affect Alabama on Saturday, according to the weather service.

Bitterly cold air moves in Saturday, dropping our temperatures into the single digits by afternoon as northerly winds increase to 10-15 miles per hour. Now another, even colder, shot of air will be arriving on New Years Eve.

The wind chill values only get worse as the day goes on.

Winter Weather Advisory noon Saturday through 1 AM Sunday
The temperatures are likely to stay below zero the entire weekend with overnight lows bottoming out at 20 to 30 below zero. A Winter Weather Advisory is in effect until 4am Saturday for the highlighted areas.

Once the temperatures drop below freezing early Sunday evening, they are likely to stay at or below freezing for as many as 60-65 hours, or until late morning on Wednesday.

Little to no accumulation of wintry precipitation is expected at this time.

With flying snow kicking off the holiday weekend, winter weather will see out 2017 and welcome the new year. Winds could gust as high as 21 miles per hour. It doesn't get much better in NY, where it could feel like minus-5 degrees, or in Washington, D.C., which is predicted to feel like 10 degrees. Many of these areas are seeing record low temperatures, especially at night, he said. The agency warned that "an extended period of these temperatures could cause significant damage to sensitive vegetation, potential for freezing and bursting of outdoor pipes". Temperatures climbed into the low 20s as opposed to the upper teens to near 20 degrees on Thursday.
