ARCTIC AIR NEXT WEEK
The arctic blast is still on track to move in Monday and Tuesday. The latest model data is showing that the bulk of the cold air will move out quickly. Expect daytime highs on Tuesday and Wednesday to stay in the teens and single digits with lows falling below zero through Wednesday morning. Along with this system, you should expect to see snow, gusty wind, and wind chill values in the -20° to -30° range at times. Make sure that your pets have a warm place to stay while these temperatures fall to dangerous levels.
