(WKBN) — Winter is not over for our part of the country. We will experience another blast of colder air to wrap up the first week of February.
Arctic air will push out of Canada and sweep into the United States late this week. This cold air will also pour into Northeast Ohio and Western Pennsylvania.
When will the Arctic Air arrive?
Look for a strong cold front to sweep through Ohio and Pennsylvania Thursday evening and into the overnight. Temperatures will fall into the low teens by early Friday morning across Northeast Ohio and Western Pennsylvania. This includes Youngstown, Ohio.
Our region will catch the edge of the coldest air. Parts of New England, including Maine, Vermont and New Hampshire, will get even colder with dangerous wind chill temperatures and frigid cold air temperatures.
