Forecast: Cold and Colder

By Jason Samenow

Flurries possible today; frigid tomorrow

It's about to get cold, real cold. Today's possible flurries and modest chill will be overshadowed by an Arctic front ushering in bone-chilling conditions late tonight into tomorrow. Temperatures will start to recover somewhat early next week.


Mostly cloudy, chance of flurries. 35-40. A cold day it will be, but not brutal. We'll have generally overcast skies with a 30% chance of light snow or flurries in the afternoon as a storm develops to the south. In the evening, this storm will be pushed out to sea by a strong cold front, with any lingering flurries ending by midnight. The winds will kick up late and it will turn very cold by morning, with lows near 20.


Mostly sunny, windy and cold. Mid to upper 20s. Expect the coldest day of the season to date. Temperatures will likely not get out of the 20s with wind chills generally in the teens. Overnight, actual air temperatures will plunge into the low to mid teens in the city, with widespread single digits in the colder suburbs.

Keep reading for a look ahead to the forecast early next week...


After a numbingly cold start, full sunshine will help temperature rise to near freezing on Monday, the Martin Luther King holiday.

On Tuesday, the warming trend continues, with highs 35-40. There's a 50/50 chance of light rain or snow as a weak cold front passes by during the day.
