FIRST ALERT WEATHER DAY: Bundle up for a bitterly cold New Year's Eve

(WWBT) - Heading out for New Years Eve? Be sure to dress warmly!

High temperatures Sunday will not make it out of the 20s. By the time you head outside Sunday evening to celebrate the arrival of 2018, it's going to be frigid. For that reason, we are issuing a First Alert Weather Day for Sunday Night. Here is what we expect through the evening:

While it will be the coldest day of the winter so far on Monday, no records are expected to be broken. Here are the records for New Years Eve and New Years Day:

With the anticipated deep freeze, don't forget to protect your pipes from freezing and make sure any exposed pipes are protected from the cold. Make sure your pets are kept warm too!

We are monitoring the development of an offshore storm by Wednesday into Thursday. While this system is expected to be far enough away to keep most of central Virginia dry, a brush with some light snow is possible out near the Bay. We'll be watching this closely!
