Connecticut will experience very cold weather over the next several days with evening temperatures ranging from the low teens to single digits, with winds causing the wind chill factor to dip below zero.
Appropriate clothing should be worn when venturing outdoors. Pets should not be kept outside during this extremely cold weather, as they can suffer frostbite and hypothermia the same as humans.
