From our friends at the National Weather Service : Bitterly cold weather tonight...
The combination of an Arctic air mass, a clear sky, and diminishing wind will set the stage for a frigid night. Low temperatures across Northern Maine will drop to 10 to 20 below and locally as low as 30 to 35 below across the valleys of the North Maine Woods.
Frost bite and hypothermia are likely in as short as 15 to 30 minutes if you are exposed to these extremely cold temperatures without proper protection. Make sure that you dress with several layers of clothes designed for the extreme conditions. Most pets should be kept inside during periods of extreme cold. Regular access to clear and unfrozen water Is critical. Roaming cats will often seek the warmth of vehicle engines...so be sure to knock on your vehicle hood or honk the horn before starting your vehicle.
