Coldest Air of the Winter Today Before Weekend Warmup
The coldest air of the winter has moved in, but expected to move out by the weekend.
The coldest air of the winter to date - by far - has moved through Marlborough with lows in the single digits overnight.
Windchills were close to zero on Wednesday morning and predicted to be below zero this morning, which will be the coldest day since last February.
Wednesday morning saw single digits to got along with biting winds. Although today is set to have less wind, the arctic air from the north will bring colder temperatures. According to the WHDH Channel 7 Weather Blog, most of the state will make it to the mid 20's at most by the afternoon.
There is hope for the weekend, though according to WHDH Chief Meteorologist Pete Bouchard. Forecasts call for the cold weather to end by the weekend and temperatures to be back into the 40s by next week.
"Certainly not enough to melt outdoor ice rinks and vanquish the snowpack, but it's a good sign that the deep freeze will be short-lived," wrote Bouchard in one of his latest blogs.
