Frigid temps will continue through Thursday, according to Tim Morrin, meteorologist with the National Weather Service office at Upton.

On Wednesday morning, temperatures hovered around seven degrees, with a wind chill index of minus 14. Highs on Wednesday are expected to reach 15 degrees and Wednesday night, expecting a low of one degree above zero with wind chill values as low as minus 11.

Thursday will dawn partly sunny with a two-out-of-ten chance of a snow shower in the afternoon, Morrin said. The high on Thursday will only reach 20 degrees, with wind chills as low as minus 11.
