Cold weather sets in; some shots at snow, but no certainties

Temperatures barely rebound during the afternoon with highs in the 20s to lower 30s Wednesday.

Saturday will see temperatures in the mid-20s, with mainly cloudy skies. That is not to say that the models can't change in the next few days. Once again, wind chill temperatures will be dangerously cold. While there is a chance of flurries virtually with any and all of them, we're not talking about any major systems moving through. Skies will remain clear into tomorrow, and high temperatures will be around 0°. Lows will be in the teens and 20s.

We will track the colder air and all the snow details tonight on WYMT. Locations centered inside the WYMT viewing area and north have been able to receive a little bit more sunshine today.

The stretch of really frigid weather is expected to continue Wednesday across western CT, as temperatures in some parts of the state this morning began in the single digits. Some freezing drizzle or perhaps light snow is possible on Saturday into New Year's Eve Sunday. That said, I think we still have a reasonably good chance to see some snowflakes with all this cold air around - even as the odds of a significant event have fallen.

Watch: Snow pushes out; arctic air coming soon

Highs on Friday will be in the mid-30s under mostly cloudy skies. We should get a better handle on this potential over the next couple of days. And if you haven't already, join us on Facebook and follow us on Twitter and Instagram.

As mentioned above, Monday will be cold with a scattered snow chance.

Last year on Christmas we were dealing with record breaking highs and a risk for severe weather.not so much the case this year.
