Stephen Latimer, meteorologist for the National Weather Service office in Huntsville, said wind chills will add to the bitterness of the temperatures. A wind advisory was in effect from 1 p.m.to 7 p.m. Monday, given the potential for gusts of up to 50 miles per hour and potential for downed tree limbs and branches. The overall chance of precipitation is estimated at 30 percent. We are under another Wind Chill Advisory until noon today.

A cold air mass over parts of the Midwest and Northern Plains will begin expanding to the southeast as arctic high pressure builds in across parts of the mid-Atlantic, resulting in a cold end to the work week. On the Virginia Shore, the highest temperature for the week will be 38 degrees Saturday and lowest 18 degrees Sunday night, per the weather service.

The high on Tuesday will be in the mid 20s, but will fall into the single digits overnight and peak in the low 20s and teens during the day, the weather service forecast shows.

"People need to keep that in mind if they have New Year's Eve plans", Latimer said.

Regardless of any Saturday snow, the cold air will remain firmly locked in place through the New Year, so First Night celebrations on Sunday night look very cold with temps in the single digits. Snow showers will greet the morning, though little to no snow accumulation is expected throughout the day.
