Temperatures will slowly climb out of the bone-chilling range that has gripped the Wyoming Valley for the past week.
As of 8 a.m., it was 2 degrees at the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton International Airport, with a wind chill that felt like -17 degrees. Sunny skies greeted the morning commute, but did little to deter the cold. Though some school districts operated on a 2-hour delay, all districts in Luzerne County were operating on a normal schedule.
The National Weather Service predicts sunny skies today, with a high near 16 degrees and a wind chill that feels like -6 degrees. Mostly clear skies are expected tonight, with a low around 6 and a wind chill that feels like -1.
There will be sun with highs climbing to the upper 20s Thursday. A slight chance of snow is possible after 3 a.m. — otherwise, mostly cloudy skies are expected with a low of 20 degrees.
A chance of light snow is expected on Friday, with a high in the mid 30s. That chance for snow will carry into Friday night, with a low in the lower 20s.
