Record Cold, Then More Snow

Brutal cold moved in overnight, plunging the state into record-breaking cold, and another storm is expected to bring more snow to the state over the weekend.

An arctic chill has swept cold air into the state, making Friday the coldest morning of the season so far. The temperature reached -7 at Bradley Airport this morning, breaking the record of -5 set in 1910 and 1998.

NBC Connecticut weather watchers in Falls Village reported temperatures as low as -15.

Because of the extremely cold temperatures, Gov. Dannel Malloy is extending the severe cold weather protocol through Feb. 16.

More snow is expected to start up Saturday afternoon. A few inches are possible on Sunday and the NBC Connecticut weather team is watching the forecast for snow on Monday as well.

There is no sign of relief with an exceptionally cold and stormy pattern lingering through the next two weeks.
