Single-Digit Wind Chills Moving Into Connecticut

Single digit wind chills and snow squalls possible...

NBC Connecticut meteorologists are forecasting temperatures that will feel like the middle of winter Friday into Saturday. 

In fact, we're forecasting temperatures to be so cold that they could break low-temperature records Saturday morning.

After temperatures in the upper 40s low 50s major changes are in-store for today and Saturday. A wind advisory is in effect for parts of Connecticut.

Take a look at temperatures Friday at 5 a.m., parts of the state are in the 40s as the cold front continues to push through.

Temperatures will be colder by 3 p.m. than they were first thing in the morning. This is a glimpse at what you can expect when you step outside at 3 p.m. on Friday.

What will make these temperatures feel even worse is a gusty wind out of the northeast. The northeast wind will lead to wind chill values in the single digits and teens this morning.

In addition to the gusty winds, there is also a chance for a few snow squall especially for areas of western Connecticut. 

The coldest temperatures arrive Friday night and especially by first thing Saturday morning. Some towns could be waking up to temperatures in the single digits while most of the state including the shoreline will experience temperatures between 10 and 20 degrees.

The cold blast will be rather short with a "warm-up" by Sunday with high temperatures in the middle 40s.
