NEW YORK (AP) — The snowstorm that hit the East Coast with frigid, wind-whipped whiteness and ice that wouldn't melt seems to pick a different bull's eye target each day.
On Saturday, wind chill warnings throughout the Northeast hit Burlington, Vermont, with a temperature of minus 1 and a wind chill of minus 30. Both Philadelphia and New York were shivering at 8 degrees, with wind chills of minus 11 in Philadelphia and minus 9 in New York.
And in Hartford, Connecticut, a brutal cold of 10 degrees yielded a wind chill of minus 20.
These locations, however, had nothing on the White Mountains in New Hampshire. The Mount Washington Observatory, on its website, predicted that the mountain's highest summits could see wind chills of minus 100 degrees Saturday. At 6 a.m. Saturday, it tied with Armstrong, Ontario, as the second coldest place in the world at minus 36.
In Rhode Island, hospitals were treating dozens of storm-related injuries as the region grits through a deep freeze that followed a powerful blizzard.
The cold conditions everywhere will last most of the weekend, but Monday expects to be the first day above freezing since last month. In New York City, temperatures should reach 40 degrees next week.
Fast forward to early next week, though, and more seasonable weather across the region is expected to return with temperatures in the high 30s and near 40s.
The same is true for north Georgia, with temperatures expected to rebound into the 50s during the day and 30s and 40s at night in the coming week They have been stuck in the 30s during the day and teens and 20s at night for several days. Wind chills at night plunged into the single digits in many places and held in the teens and 20s during the day.
Just a couple of days ago, forecasters were predicting freezing rain and rain for Sunday and Monday but now a dry Sunday appears in store for most of north Georgia with a bit of freezing rain Monday morning and only rain the rest of the day.
