IT’S ARCTIC OUT THERE

ColdCars waiting for a green light at the corner of Bridge Avenue and Monmouth Street created a steamy scene last night.

A high near 17 degrees. Wind chill values of 15 below zero.

That's what's in store today and through Saturday morning as temperatures drop with the arrival of an Arctic air mass, says the National Weather Service.

We'll get some moderation of temperatures after that before another Arctic high rolls in, bringing some snow, the NWS forecasts.
