Temperatures are expected to sit in the single digits Wednesday afternoon before falling below zero at night. Wind chills will range from 10 to 20 degrees below zero Wednesday afternoon, and 15 to 25 below at night.
"A wind chill advisory means that very cold air and strong winds will combine to generate low wind chills," the NWS advisory reads. "This will result in frost bite and lead to hypothermia if precautions are not taken. If you must venture outdoors, make sure you wear a hat and gloves."
Thursday's high is 21 degrees.
