Along with the gusty winds, blowing and drifting snow will be an issue if you are traveling today.

The coldest wind chills will occur Thursday night through Saturday morning. The morning will start out frigid, but by the afternoon we'll see temperatures closer to 30 degrees.

Today, with winds out of the west at 10-20 miles per hour and gusts in the 30-40 miles per hour range, we'll have brutally cold wind chills with some spots, especially northern New England, the Berkshires, and even in Central Massachusetts, with wind chills nearing 30 to 40 below.

A wind chill advisory is in effect for western Dutchess County and a wind chill warning is in effect for eastern Dutchess until 7 a.m. Sunday.

Record or no record, it will be a very cold weekend! A cold front will bring light snow showers by Monday evening through Tuesday morning, with not much accumulation expected for now. Highs will only reach the upper 20s this afternoon but with the wind it will feel more like the low to mid teens. Skies are mostly cloudy throughout the day with winds at 5-10MPH out of the south. A wintry mix is possible by Monday. Expect mostly sunny skies with a NW wind at 10 to 20 miles per hour.

We warm a bit each day next week.
