CARIBOU, Maine — While no major snowstorms are in the forecast for the upcoming weekend, the state is expected to go into a deep freeze.

Arctic air is expected to move into the area Saturday, according to the National Weather Service, bringing with it potentially dangerous wind chills.

According to the weather service, wind chills in northwestern parts of the state could reach 35 below zero Sunday morning.

The Bangor area won’t be spared from the numbing wind chills, either, with wind chill temperatures expected to dip as low as 24 below zero Sunday morning, the weather service reported.

High temperatures are expected to be in the teens Saturday and in the single digits Sunday.
