Freezing Temperatures Forecasted for Chester County Thru New Year
By Modena Fire Company
December 26, 2017

While we have been enjoying a milder winter this coming week the forecast is for a lot colder temperatures, here are some things you can do to minimize the impact of the weather on your homes as well as maintaining a safe home.

1. At or below freezing temps are expected for the next week to 10 days with persistent much below normal cold beginning Wednesday the 27th and possibly continuing beyond New Years Day.
2. Heating systems will need to be working properly and adequately fueled to prevent freezing of pipes and infrastructure problems. Please see attached graphic for potential extreme cold impacts and safety tips.
3. Temperatures this Thursday and Friday should average around 15 degrees below normal. This becomes more important since most of the area south of I-80 is without the insulating effect of snow cover.
4. A second possibly colder outbreak should begin Sunday (NY Eve) and possibly linger through Tuesday Jan 2, 2018.

Official Announcement by NWS Mt Holly:

12/25 4pm - NWS Mt Holly is forecasting for Chester County freezing temperatures the rest of the week with Thursday & Friday forecasted to be 15 degrees below normal. Slight chance of a small amount of snow Friday into Saturday. More
