Special Weather Statement
The National Weather Service in Upton, N.Y. issued the following Special Weather Statement:
“As low pressure takes shape off the mid Atlantic coast this morning and strong high pressure builds east from the upper Midwest, a gusty northwest flow will return today.
“Gusts by mid-morning will be approaching 25 mph and as high 30 mph this afternoon. This will result in wind chill values this morning from around zero at the coast to as low as 10 below across the interior.
“During the afternoon hours wind chill values will be in the single digits for most of the region but then will drop back to zero to 10 below tonight.
“Arctic air will remain in place Friday into Friday night as low pressure passes off to the southeast and brings some light snow late in the day. Slow moderation in temperatures and wind chills should then begin over the weekend into early next week in the wake of this system.”
