Cold front brings even colder air for the new year

Cold front brings even colder air for the new year

In fact, you may want to reconsider partying outside this New Year's Eve, given the biting cold and chance for snow in the forecast. Despite unlimited sunshine, temperatures will only reach the upper single digits and teens. That means wind chill values could drop below zero for higher elevations.

Forecasters are particularly concerned because the window for possible snow will fall on New Year's Eve, when more people could be out on the roads. Single-digit wind chills will start the day without much warming by the afternoon. An arctic front will push through before sunrise with temperatures quickly tumbling through the 20s in the wake of the front. Lows will range from -18 to 0°. Highs will be in the 20s and lower 30s, but a gusty northwest wind will develop especially during the afternoon as the storm intensifies offshore.

While many states up north are freezing, Florida has a few days to spare before feeling the frosty breath of this cold front. The arctic air hangs around much of next week with sub-freezing temperatures possible through next Thursday.

Forecasters said plenty of uncertainty still exists, but they will keep a mention of a wintry mix in the forecast.

Daytime temperatures will barely make it into the mid 20s with winds gusts up to 25 miles per hour.

The snow will continue to overspread the area from west to east during the morning, then stick around into the afternoon before tapering back to snow showers. Forecasters expect temperatures around Slidell to drop below freezing by 9 p.m., with a 20-degree overnight low expected. That was the coldest December on record with an average temperature of 18.1 degrees! High temperatures on Saturday may briefly creep above the freezing mark but that will be the last time for a while.
