Brrr....As we have mentioned, it will be COLD over the next week. In fact, a few record lows and record cold maximums are in jeopardy (highlighted in yellow). Even on days when we aren't getting close to records, we expect much of the region to stay at or below freezing for the entire week. If you are going out this week, dress in many warm layers. Remember to bring pets inside and check on your neighbors. For more safety tips visit http://www.nws.noaa.gov/om/cold/ For the latest forecast for your location visit www.weather.gov/phi
