Northeast is expected to see record cold temperatures this weekend coupled with high wind conditions, according to the Hometown Forecast Service.

ABC News reported that Arctic air will first spill into the Midwest on Thursday, tumbling temperatures into the 20s and teens in Minnesota, North Dakota and South Dakota. That frigid flow will continue to move eastward, bringing record lows with it, the network said.

The temperature in Islip, New York, on Long Island, is expected to drop to 1 on Saturday, beating the old record low by six degrees. Albany, New York, and Worcester, Massachusetts, are both expected to reach record lows of minus-12 degrees, the Hometown Forecast Service said.

The Weather Channel said numerous records could fall Saturday morning in the Northeast, including in Allentown, Pennsylvania (19 degrees in 1956); Baltimore (21 degrees in 1973); Binghamton, New York (16 degrees in 1956); Boston (24 degrees in 1911); Buffalo, New York (19 degrees in 1957); Erie, Pennsylvania (24 degrees in 1933); New York City, Central Park (28 degrees in 1933); Pittsburgh (21 degrees in 1973); Scranton/Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania (18 degrees in 1956) Syracuse, New York (19 degrees in 1957); and Washington D.C. (26 degrees in 1973).

"Residents who have held out on turning on the heat in their homes may be finally cranking up thermostats or stoking fires this week," Kristina Pydynowski, a senior meteorologist with AccuWeather, wrote earlier this week about the incoming cold weather in the Northeast.

"This week will bring the most prolonged stretch of chilly weather for the Northeast since last spring. While invasions of cold air are not uncommon in November, this upcoming stretch of chill may be especially noticed by residents following the unusually warm October and yet another surge of mild air starting the week," she continued.

Wind chill advisories have already been given across the Northeast through midday Sunday, with wind predicted to gust up to 30 miles per hour at times, particularly during the day, the Hometown Forecast Service said.

The Weather Channel said areas of heavy lake-effect snow are expected for a time behind the Arctic blast in the northern Great Lakes, with a burst of snow associated with the arctic front itself from the eastern Great Lakes into northern New England.
