Wind chill may hit minus 20

SUNBURY — Temperatures will plummet across the Valley today into Wednesday, thanks to another blast of frigid polar air, said a meteorologist Monday night.

The combination of gusty winds of up to 20 mph, dry air and low temperatures will result in wind chill temperatures that could easily reach minus 20 this morning and afternoon, said Brian Edwards, of AccuWeather.

The good news, he added, is the weather pattern that has delivered more than a dozen Alberta Clipper storms, subzero temperatures and frequent snow events during much of January is coming to an end.

The new weather pattern will shut off the flow of totally Arctic air and will allow more of a blend of air from the Arctic and the Pacific Ocean.

But before then, be prepared for a near-record low tonight, with temperatures between minus 3 to minus 7, Edwards said. “At least there will be no appreciable wind, so the wind chill will be negligible,” he added.

Normal temperatures for this time of year in the Susquehanna Valley are in the mid-30s. The all-time low for this day is minus 7.

, which could be matched tonight in some parts of the region.
