Cold spell to stretch through New Year's

As you head north in New England, temperatures showed little sign of reaching out of the single digits.

Wednesday's high temperature should be around 61 degrees, and the National Weather Service indicates that's pretty much the high for each day through the end of the year.

High temps are not expected to be above freezing until possibly January 7.

Sunday is expected to be partly sunny with a high near 31 degrees.

Average temperatures for this time of year are about 19 degrees for a high and 3 degrees for a low, Carletta said, but the weather lately hasn't been record-breaking. There is a slight chance of rain and snow showers after then. The forecast calls for a 20 percent chance of snow after 8 p.m. Thursday.

The metro area could be looking at lows in the 20s or even the teens on New Year's Eve, according to forecasters.

"Monday night right now appears to be the coldest", Hooper said Tuesday.

A wind chill advisory is in place in Livingston and Ontario Counties from 9 p.m. Wednesday until noon Thursday.

The warmest day in the next week, according to the weather service, could be Friday, when the high temperature for Decatur is 22 degrees.

Clarke said residents should brace for the cold blast by ensuring that their homes are properly heated and insulated and that pets are kept from harsh temperatures.

So you woke to biting cold on Wednesday when you hurried to your vehicle for the morning commute, but how long will this cold snap last?
