If you have outdoor plans for New Year's Eve, get ready to bundle it: It's going to be one of the coldest ever!

11Alive StormTracker Samantha Mohr said arctic air spilling in from the North Pole will cause temperatures to plunge.

Around 8 p.m. Sunday, expect temps to be around 36 degrees. By midnight, it'll be around freezing. Wind chill temps will be in the low to mid-20s.

We'll start out New Year's Day around 24 degrees! The high will only reach around 36 degrees, Mohr said.

It looks like this will be the coldest New Year's since 2002.

The coldest New Year's Day on record was in 1928. On that day, the low was 7 degrees and the high only reached 25!

If this year's temps are as expected, its high of 36 would be the the 12th coldest high on record for Jan. 1. The low, 24, would be tied for the 15th coldest low. (That would be based on records taken since the late 1800s).
