This morning’s biting cold makes last week’s winter storm seem like an afterthought.
The temperature hovered at around -4 degrees this morning, with a wind chill value of -20. The skies were clear for the most part, and the snow from the winter storm has all but melted away.
Numerous schools throughout the Wyoming Valley have closed for the day, and there were very few 2-hour delays reported.
Temperatures will warm to about 5 degrees today, with wind chill values as low as -30. Partly sunny skies are expected with winds from 15 to 25 miles per hour. Gusts could reach as high as 35 miles per hour. A low of zero is expected tonight with mostly clear skies. Winds from 15 to 20 miles per hour could result in wind chill values as low as -22.
Temperatures will finally warm somewhat tomorrow to 15 to 20 degrees with partly sunny skies, but wind chill values are expected to reach as low as -18. Tomorrow night’s lows will be around 10 to 15 degrees, and partly to mostly cloudy skies are expected.
No precipitation is currently expected until Friday night.
