Jan. 3, 2013. As the National Weather Service’s Blacksburg, Va., office posted on its Facebook page Friday morning, today’s single-digit temperatures are “good practice” for the even colder weather that is expected to arrive early next week. 

Forecasters are predicting that subzero temperatures are a possibility and that the weather will be the coldest since an “arctic outbreak” that happened Jan. 1994. The best-case scenario is “extremely cold.”
