NWS forecasts another shot of Arctic air for region

A reinforcing shot of bitter cold air will come in time for the new year and we are looking at a little snow to coat the ground as well. Morning clouds will give way to afternoon sun once again, but temperatures will only warm into the mid 10s after morning lows in the single digits. Highs will only be in the teens and the wind chill will be sub-zero throughout the day.

Another round of crew members will be ready to work through Friday night and into Saturday morning if road conditions require it, according to a release from the city. High temperatures will be in the low 20s with brisk northwest winds around 20mph which will make temperatures feel like its in the single digits despite the sunshine.

Then, for your New Year's Day plans... it'll only FEEL LIKE it's in the teens through the afternoon (as highs stay in the 20s). Windchill values are going to drop to -12 to -20 degrees across Kansas when the clock strikes 12 to start 2018. Lows will range from -18 to 0°. Some predictions even call for snow flurries in Tampa, although meteorologists are downplaying those chances. Afternoon readings were generally in the mid to upper 30s, the warmest levels since before last weekend.

Highs won't make it above 20 the next 7 days. Low: 42. Wind: S/SE 5 miles per hour.

Wednesday: Cloudy skies. Snow showers late. So, get ready for some very cold weather after today as that frigid air mass settles into our area.

Temperatures finally edged above freezing Friday compliments of southwest winds. 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.

On Thursday, a high temperature of 25 degrees was recorded at Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport, which is much lower than the average of 44 degrees.
