... Major outbreak of Arctic air this weekend...

Bitterly cold temperatures and dangerous wind chills will move into
the area this weekend.

* Temperatures Saturday night into early Sunday morning will fall to
between zero and 5 above in and around Philadelphia and areas
south and east, zero to 5 below in eastern Pennsylvania and
northern New Jersey, and as low as 12 below in the Poconos. Wind
chill values during this time could reach life threatening levels
as cold as 15 to 30 below zero, with the coldest in the Poconos.

* High temperatures on Sunday will only be in the teens, except
in the single digits in the Poconos.

* Cold spells of this magnitude bring a risk of frostbite and
hypothermia for anyone who does not take proper precautions. In
addition, frozen pipes and overworked furnaces could leave your
house without heat or running water, and car batteries run the
risk of dying. In addition, make sure your home and car have
plenty of fuel.

* Never venture outdoors without wearing gloves, a hat and several
layers of clothing. Wind chill values Saturday night into
Sunday morning could lead to frostbite in less than 30 minutes
if proper precautions are not taken. Check on your elderly
neighbors to be sure they are okay.

* Run water at a trickle and keep Cabinet doors open to prevent
pipes from freezing, especially for exposed pipes and those along
exterior walls.

* Never use a stove or oven to heat your home or use an open flame
to melt frozen pipes. Many house fires result from these practices.

* Check tire pressure and your car battery. Be sure your car has a
winter safety kit that includes a blanket, warm clothes and gloves
in case your car breaks down or becomes stranded.

* Take extra steps to keep your pets warm and know their limits to
the cold.
