From The National Weather Service.....

Bitterly cold wind chills expected to develop Monday afternoon and last into 
Tuesday morning across much of Southern New England

 A cold front crossing Southern New England tonight will bring another arctic 
blast to the region. Temperatures by daybreak Monday will settle back into 
the single digits across northwest Massachusetts and southwest New Hampshire, 
and the teens elsewhere except lower 20S along the immediate coast.

 A brisk northwest flow will develop by late Monday morning across Southern 
New England. This will allow much colder air to usher into the region during 
the daylight hours Monday. Temperatures are expected to remain nearly steady 
in the teens inland and the 20S along the coast. Expect combined temperatures 
and brisk winds to create wind chill values between minus 10 degrees inland 
to plus 5 degrees along the immediate coast by evening. 

Northwest winds are expected to diminish inland Monday evening and along the 
immediate coast after midnight. However actual temperatures are expected to 
drop to as low at minus 10 degrees across the sheltered interior valleys, to 
the single numbers elsewhere, except mid teens across outer Cape Cod and the 
islands. combined actual temperatures and wind speeds may yield wind chill 
values between minus 15 and minus 25 degrees Monday night and early Tuesday 

. Monday Night and Tuesday mornings wind chills could pose a significant 
problem for those having to spend extended periods of time outdoors. wind 
chills between minus 15 and minus 25 degrees would cause exposed flesh to 
freeze within 30 minutes. Best advice if venturing outdoors especially from 
Monday afternoon through Tuesday morning is to dress in layers of protective 
clothing. Wear a hat, gloves, earmuffs and a scarf to keep the head, face, 
ears, nose and hands covered. Stay indoors inside a warm building if possible.
