Wind Chill At Mount Washington Drops To Minus 90 Degrees

Once again, it's a night that you can't leave your pets outside, nor you should spend any prolong time outside either.

The wind will be much lighter Sunday, meaning even our forecast high of just under 20 degrees will feel much warmer than Saturday and wind chill will be well below risky threshold. This means there is a potential for dangerously cold wind chills capable of inducing frostbite in as little as 30 minutes or less if not properly bundled up.

Snowfall has ended, but strong wind gusts today will result in blowing and drifting snow, reducing visibilities and accumulation on roads at times. Wind speeds will slowly start to weaken into the overnight hours as well, finally becoming calm early Sunday morning. The concern or any potential power outages is greater than normal given the bitterly cold air working into the region. "Intermittent lake-effect snow showers and squalls will continue through [today], with the Titusville area seeing 3-6 inches of snow during this time".

Extreme cold conditions are expected with temperatures in the single digits or lower; wind chills well below zero.

Air temperatures will warm into the mid 30s, but the ground is so cold, any rain will freeze on contact. Highest totals will be found on the tallest peaks. Clouds will build and temps will climb into the upper 20s and near 32 in places by late Sunday.

A nice warmup on tap for Thursday and Friday. Forecasted highs are in the low to mid 40s both days, with overnight lows in the upper 20s to low 30s. That might mix with some sleet or rain in spots too. More details as we get closer during the weekend.
