WEATHER: Thursday, Dec. 28 - Cold, wind chill

A southward dip in the jet stream across the East is allowing arctic air to plunge into the Lower 48

Mostly clear skies tonight will help drop low temperatures well into the upper-20's area-wide. Temperatures will warm to the mid and upper 40s. New Year's Day will be cold in the low 20s but because it will be breezy it will feel like the single digits most of the day. A few clouds will move in overnight, so that should keep us a little warmer, only getting down into the low teens. We could see a flake or two with a passing cold front in the northern half of the region with a passing cold front, but I don't expect much.

Well, it looks like 2018 will usher in sunny skies and highs in the low 80s - if you're in Honolulu. Highs Sunday, even with some sunshine later in the day, will struggle to get into the low 20s. Overnight low minus 28. The cold temperatures will stick around for the rest of next week with highs in the 40s and lows in the 20s each night through Friday. There will also be a chance of rain Sunday afternoon and Sunday night.

In terms of precipitation, we may see a few flurries on Friday, and a few snow showers are possible north of Richmond on Saturday.

But don't let the sunny image fool you; it will still be cold outside!

The brunt of the Arctic blast should hit at about 3 p.m. Sunday as wind speeds reach the mid-teens with gusts from 20-23 miles per hour.

Several friends and former colleagues from her more than 30 years in Atlanta TV called in to share their thoughts, per AJC.com . The first came following the birth of her second child and at the time, the family had disclosed Garner had an enlarged heart.

By late Sunday, the system has generally moved out of our area. that will leave your New Years Eve plans dry, but also very cold! This warm-up will be short lived as much colder temperatures will welcome us in 2018.

For most of the region encompassing New England, northern Pennsylvania and NY, the National Weather Service issued wind chill advisories or warnings as temperatures were expected to be below -12C in a wide area. Expect a milder night with temperatures in the upper 30s. Clouds will clear out during the afternoon and evening but it's going to get COLD.

The biggest story over the next week will be the very cold temperatures. Look for lows in the mid to upper 20s with light wind.

Saturday - A mix of sun and cloud. If anyone's counting - that will be at least six days with temps below freezing (day and night) and that's pretty impressive when our average high is still 40° for this time of the year.
