Arctic air is expected to begin reaching the area this weekend, with the coldest surge of frigid air early next week. This could end up being a long duration of very cold conditions and dangerous wind chill readings.
A significant winter weather event is expected Monday into Monday night. Significant ice and sleet accumulations will result in dangerous travel conditions as well as downed trees and power lines.
