Siberian Cold to Envelop Belmont Friday with Lows Below Zero

Records will be broken tomorrow morning as dangerous cold that originated in Siberia will barrel into Belmont Thursday night and last until Saturday morning.

The National Weather Service issued a Wind Chill Advisory at 4:42 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 19, for eastern Massachusetts from 3 a.m. to 10 a.m. Friday, Feb. 20 as the wind chill index is likely to reach -15 to -24 degrees.

Low temperatures Friday morning will be at or below zero with winds up to 14 to 18 mph, with gusts as high as 36 mph.

Frostbite can develop in just 30 minutes with a wind chill index of -20. If you are heading outdoors, dress in layers and wear a hat and gloves.

The arctic cold will leave the region Saturday and by Sunday, highs will range near 40 degrees with rain expected most of the day. But by Monday night, even colder temperatures could be arriving.
