NWS: Temps to remain below freezing all weekend

Those who go to the grocery store wearing shorts might want to put on a pair of pants today, like normal people do.

A warm jacket, hat and some gloves would also be wise to wear.

That’s because the combination of cold temperatures and brisk wind will make it feel between 5 and 10 degrees.

The National Weather Service says it will also be a cold weekend with a greatly diminished chance of snow.

It says a storm system that is expected to develop will be too far south to bring much snow to Connecticut.

“Souther portions of NYC/western Long Island might see light snow linger into Sunday morning, if it falls at all,” it says.

What is certain is the cold.

Cold and dry conditions will continue through the day on Saturday as high pressure gradually builds into the region from the west. High temperatures will remain at or below freezing Friday and Saturday, which is about 5-10 degrees below normal for this time of year.

Gusty northwest winds during the day will make it feel even colder, with wind chill values generally remaining in the teens. As winds gradually diminish tonight, lows will fall to around 10 degrees in some outlying areas, with temperatures in the mid-teens to around 20 elsewhere.

Today: Sunny, with a high near 30. Wind chill values between 5 and 15. Northwest wind 13 to 17 mph, with gusts as high as 28 mph.
