Many Northeast cities will likely feel their coldest air of the winter season (so far) on Saturday morning! Air temperatures will fall well below zero in northern New England, while larger cities in the Mid-Atlantic area will dip into the teens and single digits.
If the forecast pans out as expected, these morning low temperatures will likely be the coldest of the season to this point! Many cities near the Interstate 95 corridor have had a very mild winter with little to no snowfall, but Saturday morning will feel much more wintry.
A strong cold front pushed through the Northeast Friday, bringing these colder temperatures. High pressure will build in Saturday and provide a clear sky, but will also bring breezy winds with it. When the wind is factored in, the wind chill will be in the teens to twenties *below* zero!
The cold weather will be short-lived as temperatures are expected to rebound quite quickly by Sunday.
This cold air mass came from the Midwest and High Plains where it brought record cold temperatures on Friday morning.
These locations are also warming up right now and will likely have much higher temperatures Saturday and Sunday afternoon.
