Today many of us have experienced one of the coldest days in Pennsylvania in the last several years. Wind chill values have bottomed out anywhere from negative 10 to negative 30 degrees across the state today. Truly remarkable numbers for our area. Unfortunately, dangerous wind chill values will continue to be an issue through Sunday. Wind chill values will remain well below zero through Sunday morning. Winds are expected to begin to calm by Sunday afternoon, so we do expect wind chills to be less brutal by then.
Waking up Saturday morning will once again be downright bone chilling. Wind chill temperatures are expected to range anywhere from zero to negative 20 degrees across the state. Take a look below at the latest GFS wind chill value projections valid 7:00 AM Saturday morning:
Wind chill value temperatures are expected to remain below zero even as we head into the afternoon hours Saturday. Sunday morning will be another brutally cold morning with wind chill values once again below zero degrees. Take a look at the latest GFS projections below for 7:00 AM Sunday morning:
