HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) - After nearly half a century, a new record could be set for the coldest Feb. 20 in Connecticut.

Temperatures are expected to be between 5 degrees above zero to 5 degrees below on Friday. The National Weather Service says a record low temperature of 2 degrees in Bridgeport was set on Feb. 20, 1966.

It issued weather advisories for the intense cold.

Forecasters say wind chills are expected to be as low as 30 below zero Friday morning. The wind chill advisory for southern Connecticut and suburban New York will remain in effect until 10 a.m.

A wind chill advisory means that very cold air and strong winds will combine to create low wind chills. This will result in frostbite and lead to hypothermia without precautions.
