Bitter cold temperatures continue to plague the area with relief still several days out

Dry, windy and cold until the weekend.

MEMPHIS, Tenn — Here's what you need to know about our weather right now and for the rest of the week...IT IS REALLY COLD AND WINDY! 

 - KEEP THE HEAVY COAT HANDY

- DON'T FORGET GLOVES AND HATS TO STAY WARM

- NO BIG WARM UP UNTIL LATE WEEKEND

This morning we started off on a very very cold foot. Windchill in single digits-yikes! Bless you if your job requires you to be outside and for anyone who isn't able to be somewhere warm during the day and night...which brings me to the 4 P's. Plants...they're likely dead BUT let's keep the People and Pets in your life safe and warm and protect your pipes!

On top of it...the air is incredibly DRY! For perspective...50 is comfortable and 70 is when we are swimming through the air in the summer...so single digits? YIKES.

It can also cause nose bleeds when your nose gets so dry. I have had issues with my eyes and contacts!

Sadly there isn't much relief until end of the weekend and next week.
