New Year's Eve could be 'one of the coldest' as arctic front moves through area

The National Weather Service will likely issue wind chill advisories for Sunday night as forecast wind chills in some areas may dip below zero.

A brutal shot of arctic air is set to lock much of the USA from Montana to the East Coast in a bone-chilling deep freeze for New Year's Day, with temperatures expected to plunge to around zero in northern Oklahoma. What few light showers we have out and about will move out of the region before the below freezing temperatures arrive, so all precipitation will fall in the form of rain.

This means that temperatures will be below freezing and could be hazardous to plants, pets or pipes. The day will start with temperatures in the 40s and will eventually fall into the 30s by evening. You will definitely need to bundle up if you plan to be outdoors for New Year's! During this episode of frigid weather, highs struggled to reach 10 degrees and lows plummeted into the single digits on six nights. Temperatures Sunday afternoon will either hold steady or drop through the 30s.

Philadelphia Eagles' Nick Foles fails to impress in regular-season finale
But Nick Foles was far from comforting with 4-of-11 for 39 yards with an interception before getting the rest of the game off. Finally, the zero was taken off the board with that fourth quarter score, which admittedly was an impressive touchdown drive.

But since the wind will also be a factor (with wind gusts as high as 15-25 mph), protection against hypothermia is important as well.

But freezing cold air will settle in for Sunday and Monday. The cold wind chills can cause frostbite as well in as little as 30 minutes. A freeze watch has been issued for late Monday through Tuesday morning A hard freeze also is forecast Wednesday morning.
