HORSEHEADS, NY(WENY)- Arctic Air is expected to plunge into our region later this week with bitter cold and dangerous wind chill values. The dangerous cold is likely to begin Friday and continue into Saturday.

WENY Chief Meteorologist said, '' This will be some of the coldest air that we have seen for the season and even colder than what we had around Christmas. We had lows right around zero degrees just before Christmas. This time around we are expecting low temperatures to drop in the single digits below zero.

He continued by saying that the associated gusty winds could make it feel much colder.  When combined with winds, feel like temperatures could be as low as twenty below zero.
