NEW HAVEN, Conn. (WTNH) -- Connecticut residents are waking up to some of the coldest temperatures of the season today, in the single digits.
The sign at Saucier Mechanical Services in Southington read two degrees when News 8 was there at around 4:15 a.m. It was two degrees in Danbury and Windsor Locks, and one degree in Torrington.
Temperatures along the shoreline were warmer, relatively speaking, reading eight degrees in New Haven and nine degrees in Bridgeport as of 5:00 a.m.
With the bitter cold you may find it a bit more difficult to start your car. AAA reports they received more than one thousand calls for assistance, double their usual number.
Several cities and towns Wednesday opened warming centers for residents who needed to get out of the cold. The governor's office advised anyone looking to find a place to get warm to call the Connecticut Infoline at 211.
