And Happy New Year!

A Wind Chill Warning is in effect for Berkshire County until 1pm this afternoon and western Franklin, Hampshire, and Hampden County until 10am this morning. Frost bite and hypothermia can occur if precautions are not taken. And many records for daily lows continue to be broken, mostly in the upper Midwest and New England. Though, rainfall chances should begin to push offshore.

Temperatures Tuesday will reach the lower 30s with sunshine through the day. Temperatures will finally moderate heading into the middle of the week. Warming this weekend will bring 40s on Sunday and Monday. Usually, it's a 2 or 3 day stint, but this go around, we're talking about 7 straight days of 20 degree highs or lower in Boston. That's a funnel of cold air being piped down straight from the Arctic Circle.

A wind chill warning means the combination of very cold air and the wind will create dangerously low wind chill values.
