BALTIMORE, Md. (WBFF) - Brutal cold will stay for the very start of the week, before a moderating temperatures takes hold!
Expect extreme cold for our Monday with Wind Chill Advisories in effect through just before lunchtime. It will feel as cold as 5 to 15 below, which means hypothermia and frostbite could set in within 30-45 minutes if skin is left unprotected. For the start of the week, expect the coldest air of the season staying with windy highs near 20 at best.
Monday night, winds die down, but lows will plummet into the single digits to near 10.
Arctic air gradually will gradually exit Tuesday. It'll still be colder than it should be for January, with highs near 33.
The next system will move in Wednesday into early Thursday, but looks to takes a “warmer” track therefore this one should be mainly rain although it may start as possibly a brief period of sleet to start Wednesday morning and midday. Temperatures will recover into the 40s.
Colder air will arrive for Friday, but at least it won't be arctic air. Temperatures will hit 39 with a cold front moving in and some light flurries and snow showers developing.
Early flurries will end early Saturday with somewhat colder highs near 30. Temperatures will bounce back to about 37 on Sunday with another weak disturbance bringing another risk of a few flurries or snow showers again.
