Cold temperatures won't leave central Pa. this weekend

The National Weather Service is encouraging people to dress warm as temperatures drop across the area

"We will be seeing high temperatures get up above freezing for the first time in as much as ten days", said Dave Tucek, with the National Weather Service.

No precipitation is expected until Sunday, when the temperatures are forecast to be in the 40s.

Temperatures have remained below 20 degrees since December 26 and are forecast to stay below 20 degrees through the end of the week.

Potential for a light accumulating snowfall Wednesday night into Thursday night is increasing. Cold temperatures will remain for the rest of the week, with single-digit or subzero lows through Friday.

The National Weather Service is predicting the low Wednesday night in Forsyth County to be 19 degrees with a wind chill value of 9 degrees. Organizers said the arctic blast made jumping into the lake too unsafe.

Louis area will continue to feel arctic temperatures between three and five degrees for the lows early Saturday and wind chills between 2 and 3 degrees below zero, according to National Weather Service meteorologist Patrick Walsh.

High temperatures will creep a bit higher on Friday and Saturday, although the nights will still be frigid. Sunday night should be partly cloudy, with a low around 53.
