Brutally cold temperatures settle in

NEW YEAR'S DAY: More sunshine is expected for Monday with some passing clouds. If you plan on heading out to celebrate, bundle up! Winds will gradually pick up this afternoon, making for bitter cold wind chills through the heart of the afternoon.

We will start the New Year just like we finished it. From Saturday night, December 30, 2017, through at least mid-week next week, temperatures will be at or below freezing across much of the area. However, this blast of cold air will come with a light wintry mix. Throughout the day on Sunday, temperatures will continue to cool down. Be very careful when driving on any of the bridges and overpasses tomorrow. Sunny skies and southwest winds will push temperatures to 20° Tuesday afternoon after morning lows near zero.

But freezing cold air will settle in for Sunday and Monday.

A Hard Freeze Watch has been issued for every parish and county in the ArkLaTex.

Forecast Highs on New Years Eve.

New Year's Eve night will be one of the coldest in recent memory with temperatures around 5° as the clock strikes midnight. With ground temperatures below freezing, any snow will easily stick to the ground.

In southeast Nebraska, the NWS warns of dangerously cold wind chills that could cause frostbite in as little as 10 minutes to exposed skin. "Wind chills will struggle to get above zero". With a wind chill advisory in effect and winds out of the east at 10-15 miles per hour, overnight wind chill lows could drop to between 10 and 15 degrees below zero.

The beginning of 2018 will be even colder as overnight lows drop into the lows teens and single digits.

But on Tuesday, the cold air will begin a slow retreat, leading to a high of 28 degrees, and by Wednesday, a high of perhaps 45 degrees.
