A severe cold weather alert has been extended by Governor Ned Lamont until noon Wednesday, February 2 to ensure everyone has adequate shelter during the upcoming severe cold weather.
The reason for the extension is that current forecasts are indicating that over the next two weeks, highs in the state are generally expected to be in the 20s, with lows in the single digits or teens. At times, the state may experience a few arctic outbreaks during which highs may only reach about 10 degrees, with lows dipping to between -10 and -20 degrees.
If you or someone you know is in urgent need of a place to keep warm, find your nearest warming center by calling 2-1-1 or at https://uwc.211ct.org/get-help/warmingcenters/. @unitedwaycfc Please stay warm and safe!
