ALBANY – A bitterly cold Artic air mass is on its way to the Capital Region – and is expected to stick around for a few days.

The cold air mass is to arrive Thursday and last through the weekend. It is to bring with it brisk winds and very cold temperatures, the service said.

Temperatures Wednesday night are expected to dip into the high teens at Schenectady, but the really cold weather is to come in Thursday. Thursday night’s low at Schenectady is expected to approach zero, while Friday night is expected to dip below zero. Saturday night is also expected to hit zero.

High temperatures Friday and Saturday aren’t expected to escape the mid teens, the service said.

Wind chill advisories are likely to be issued, especially for higher elevations Thursday night and Friday night, the service said.
