Now comes the next phase of this brutal winter season: Another blast of bone-chilling Arctic air.

Monday is a good news and bad news situation.

The National Weather Service has also issued a winter weather advisory for the region until 6 p.m. Saturday amid the cold temperatures and wind causing blowing and drifting snow on the roadways. The temperatures should warm up Monday with a high around 59 degrees, he said.


"We will be getting dangerously cold conditions starting tonight", said Sarah Johnson, a meteorologist at the National Weather Service's regional forecast office in New Jersey.

A wind chill advisory is in effect for western Dutchess County and a wind chill warning is in effect for eastern Dutchess until 7 a.m. Sunday.

For this weekend, the temperature will drop to about 9 Friday night with a wind chill value of zero. This will begin as light snow/flurries mainly north of I-64 before transitioning to a wintry mix containing snow, sleet, and freezing rain by 2 AM.

Some of that precipitation could come in the form of freezing rain for parts of northeast Alabama late Sunday night into Monday morning, according to the weather service in Huntsville.
