New Year's Day will be bright but bitterly cold with highs in the low to mid 10s. We could see a flake or two with a passing cold front in the northern half of the region with a passing cold front, but I don't expect much. Friday and Saturday are shaping up to be the best days of the next seven, with sunny skies and highs creeping back towards average by Saturday.

Clouds overnight have kept the temperatures up a few degrees. Afternoon highs will be in the low 40s for most areas.

SUNDAY: A light wintry mix of flurries, freezing drizzle, sleet, and freezing rain is possible during the morning hours. There is even a chance of some snow Saturday to really make you-and any polar bears that might have wandered south this week-feel at home.

For what it's worth, highs will be hanging out around 10° during the afternoon on New Year's Day. Morning wind chill values will likely be in single digits with some spots seeing values close to zero. However, the area could experience one of its hardest freezes Monday night into Tuesday with temperatures dropping as low as 20 degrees. It will also be windy; therefore, it will feel much colder. Highs Saturday will be around 40 under a mix of sun and clouds.

Monday brings mostly cloudy skies with occasional lake effect snow showers. Clouds will clear out during the afternoon and evening but it's going to get COLD. Now is the time to take any precautions necessary to compensate for the cold temperatures.

Highs will only be in the mid to upper-20s for the first day of 2018.
