An arctic air mass is moving into the region, and will bring the most significant cold air outbreak in several years. Temperatures will fall to hard freeze warning levels tonight and will remain at or near record low values for 36 to 48 hours.

The combination of strong winds and cold temperatures will push wind chills as low as the single digits Thursday night.
