VERY cold air will stay with us all weekend long. Plan for another cold start on Christmas Day in the teens but the winds will not be nearly as breezy.

The record low temperature for Christmas Eve is 6° set back in 1983. We were a couple degrees warmer than the record this morning. The record low-temperature Christmas Day is 3° set back in 1983. The last time we saw temperatures stay below freezing for both Christmas Eve and Christmas Day was 1989.

Stay warm this weekend and don’t forget about your pets! We stay near or below freezing until Monday afternoon.
