Snow, frigid cold are on tap

Holiday weekend temperatures

Wednesday's high temperature should be around 61 degrees, and the National Weather Service indicates that's pretty much the high for each day through the end of the year. "On Friday a messy change-over to eventual rain will occur with a mix of rain and snow and pockets of sleet and freezing rain mainly during the morning and early afternoon with mostly rain by late afternoon".

Saturday's high is expected to be 28 with a chance of snow and a low around 12.

Thursday isn't expected to reach above freezing; the high is 31 even with mostly sunny skies, and wind could gust up to 20 miles per hour.

Friday's predicted high of 35 will be met with "another reinforcing blast of cold air during the day", Hooper said, with a low of around 19. Snow this heavy is also likely to down trees, both in roadways and into power lines, and residents should prepare for power outages.

Apple might be slowing down old iPhones to preserve battery life
Bogdanovich, like a lot of long-time iPhone owners believes this tactic is a ploy by Apple to convince people to buy new phones. The company stated that this feature started with iOS 10.2.1 and most recently came to the iPhone 7 with iOS 11.2.

A wind chill advisory is in place in Livingston and Ontario Counties from 9 p.m. Wednesday until noon Thursday. I would be shocked to see those (temperatures) rise unless we get some snowfall.

The long stretch of cold temperatures may have some additional impact, Hooper said.

Wednesday was the coldest morning in the area so far this season, with temperatures as low as 2 degrees with a -10 windchill recorded about 6 a.m.at St. Louis Lambert International Airport.

So you woke to biting cold on Wednesday when you hurried to your vehicle for the morning commute, but how long will this cold snap last?
