Through tonight: Winds will pick up late this afternoon out of the northwest, gusting up to 25 miles per hour at times with a slight chance at a stray snow shower or flurry.

Wednesday isn't looking much better. A northwest wind could gust to 40 miles per hour. Coldest temperatures that we have seen in a long time will settle in.

Be sure to familiarize yourself with the signs of both frostbite and hypothermia, and be sure to take plenty of breaks indoors in order to keep internal temperatures as well as extremities like fingers, toes, ears and noses from freezing over. Plenty of sunshine and calmer winds don't help temperatures much Saturday, they only rise to the upper teens to near 20 degrees.

The last time the temperature remained BELOW freezing for a week or more was in February of 2014. It doesn't get much better in NY, where it could feel like minus-5 degrees, or in Washington, D.C., which is predicted to feel like 10 degrees.
