In addition to the new snowfall, the forecast calls for brutal cold coming behind it. The arctic cold could very well play into work and school schedules next week. The temperatures are expected to plunge to around 14 below zero Monday night following a New Year’s Day high of 1 above zero. Tuesday’s high is only expected to be around 7 again....with lows Tuesday night down to zero. The bitterly cold weather is expected to continue throughout next week.
