Dangerous wind chills tonight. Exposed skin will be susceptible to frost bite in as little as 30 minutes. (WGME)

It’s a deep chill with no end in sight. The jet stream is fairly zonal, meaning it has a west-east orientation. When this occurs, weather patterns become stagnant. Highs will be in the single digits or just a few degrees above over the next five days. Low temperatures will consistently fall below zero. There’s a chance for snow Friday night and Saturday morning. It will not be an organized system, though. Some models are still hinting at a norlun trough in that time frame, which would result in a narrow band of heavy snow.
