Winter can bring ice, snow, and freezing temperatures, making it difficult to leave the house. From Friday into Saturday, southern New England is expected to be hit with a cold airmass resulting in some of the coldest temperature seen in this region since February 2016. Saturday morning is expected to see temperatures at or below zero with significant windchill. Highs on Saturday will only be in the single digits.

That’s why we’ve rounded up a guide for things you can do indoors during this weekend’s “arctic blast.” Stay warm.
