Deep Freeze Once Again Descends Upon East Haven

After an unusually balmy mid-50s-degree morning and afternoon today, frigid conditions will aggressively return to the shoreline later tonight — and remain through much of the rest of the week.

Temperatures in East Haven are expected to plummet tonight into the single digits as bitter cold and winds rush back into the region, according to a wind chill advisory issued by the National Weather Service.

Wind chill values will be as low as -15 degrees during this latest deep freeze, with wind gusts expected to reach some 50 miles per hour at times.

NO THAW UNTIL THURSDAY

Tuesday won't bring much relief, with temperatures rising only to 8 to 13 degrees above zero tomorrow.

The area won't begin to thaw out until Thursday afternoon, when the air temperature is expected to finally rise above freezing.
