NWS: A Deep Freeze Expected Early Next Week
UNDATED – Brace yourself for our coldest temperatures in two years.
The National Weather service says a strong cold front will sweep across the state on Sunday night, bringing with it sub-zero temperatures.
Sunday night’s low is expected to be around 17 below, and on Monday night we’ll be around 25 below.
Highs on Monday and Tuesday are also expected to stay below zero.
In fact, we’ll have a stretch of about 80 hours straight from Sunday night through Wednesday morning where we won’t see temperatures in the positive digits.
