Dec 26, 2017

BOSTON - The storm that gave New England a white Christmas has moved out and is being replaced by dangerous cold.
 
The National Weather Service issued wind chill advisories for parts of Maine, New Hampshire and northern Vermont  on Tuesday.
 
Temperatures were expected to dip below zero in Maine and northeastern Vermont, with dangerous wind chills of 15 to 25 below zero Tuesday night. The wind chill could reach 40 below zero in some areas Wednesday night and Thursday.
 
Temperatures in Massachusetts, Connecticut and Rhode Island are not expected to rise out of the 20s all week and could dip into the single digits.
 
 Monday's storm brought up to 15 inches of snow in some parts of Maine - though some areas got much less - and about 7 inches elsewhere, with high winds that caused scattered power outages.
 
On Cape Cod, winds gusting up to 76 mph knocked out power to thousands.
