Hopefully you didn’t put your winter clothing away. This morning wind chills are below zero.
Wind gusts were up near 60 mph in some places Monday night and continued into Tuesday morning. Tens of thousands lost power across the region as the howling wind tore down power lines, trees and caused other damage.
In Massachusetts, there were more than 45,000 customers without power as of 4 a.m., 30,000 in New Hampshire, 21,000 in Maine and 18,000 in Connecticut.
The winds will relax during the afternoon, though, so there won’t be as much bite.
Temperatures will quickly warm as we go into the day on Wednesday. Quiet weather will prevail. Temperatures in the next 24 hours may double or even triple.
Highs on Wednesday will reach the upper 40s and low 50s. We will see a slight setback again for the end of the week with temperatures back down into the 30s and 40s.
The weather through the weekend will be fairly quiet with a mix of sun and clouds and temperatures into the 40s most days. Next week the quiet stretch continues.
We're expecting very little if any rain or over the next seven to 10 days. If you're looking for sustained warmth, midweek next week temperatures will likely reach the mid to high 50s.
