"We basically just start saying it's stupid cold outside", Mike Carmon, senior meteorologist at Mount Washington Observatory, told The New York Times.
The National Weather Service says the extreme cold can cause frostbite to exposed skin in as little as 30-minutes. Temperatures will fall into the teens this evening, and single digits by Saturday morning.
Heading into Sunday afternoon we are under a mix of sun and clouds, and the wind will slowly pick up, this time out of the south.
The temperature hit minus 36 degrees Fahrenheit - with a wind chill of minus 90 (minus 68 degrees Celsius), according to the educational and research institution in New Hampshire. The change in the wind direction will help to move a less cold air mass into the region. "Intermittent lake-effect snow showers and squalls will continue through [today], with the Titusville area seeing 3-6 inches of snow during this time". Temperatures will hold steady into the overnight hours in the low teens, and continue to slowly climb into Monday.
MONDAY: There will be a 60 percent chance of snow, possibly mixed with freezing rain and sleet, mainly after 1 p.m. Highest totals will be found on the tallest peaks. Still, temperatures will not be as cold for the first few days of next week with highs in the 30s instead of the 10s and 20s. The warm will come with another storm system that will bring more snow into Sunday night. This could mean more slick spots on the roads overnight.
Frigid conditions have also gripped other parts of the Northeast and are expected to last most of the weekend.
