As a blast of Arctic cold approaches Fairfield County, the National Weather Service has issued a Wind Chill Watch for the weekend.

Much of the tristate area will be in a deep freeze this weekend, according to the latest forecast.

Bundle up on Saturday: It will be about 12 degrees at dawn and plunge throughout the day.

The Wind Chill Watch begins at 6 p.m. Saturday run through noon Sunday. The will be the coldest part of the weekend as temperatures plunge below zero, with what the National Weather Service describes as "life threatening wind chills" of -25 to -30 due to strong northwest winds in the evening and overnight into the morning.

The National Weather Service advises residents to wear layers, including hats and gloves; bring pets indoors; and to heat homes safely and only with indoor approved devices.
