PHILADELPHIA - We’re still a more than a month away from winter, but when you walk outside your front door over the next few days you will be feeling a winter chill! A Code Blue is in effect in the city of Philadelphia meaning the push is on to get the homeless into warm shelters.
An arctic blast brought temperatures down to the 30s and 40s on Friday, and a freeze warning has been issued for Friday night into Saturday morning.
Overnight lows in the Philadelphia area could get as low as the teens to mid-20s!
FREEZE WARNING! Coldest night of the season (so far) with actual temps in the teens and 20s. It'll feel like single-digit temps in some places. Hope the winter coat is handy! pic.twitter.com/H2gputrW1B— Sue Serio (@SueSerioFox29) November 10, 2017
