Wind Chill Advisory in effect through Friday morning

"At this point I feel comfortable putting 2-4" for accumulations (again NOT lake effect) for Sunday night and Monday (most of it Monday), but obviously based on how the system evolves and moves this will be updating.

Wind chills during that time frame will range from 20 to 30 below zero. Despite the sunshine, temperatures will struggle to climb through the low teens and gusts of 40-50 miles per hour will keep wind chill values well below zero through the day.

A Wind Chill Warning is in effect for all of central and northern NY from late Thursday evening right through Sunday morning.

Temperatures will drop today to the single digits and remain that way through tomorrow and Saturday. If winds stay calm and skies are clear, it is possible for the air temperature to drop even lower.

The weekend starts off very cold with more subzero temps to get going Saturday around Metro Detroit. Some wintry mix possible farther south (will mean less accumulation). If outside during this time, make sure to protect exposed skin such as ears, cheeks and hands, as frostbite can develop in less than 30 minutes. Watch for slick spots on roads.

Temperatures will begin to moderate through the second half of the week as high pressure settles over the region.

WEDNESDAY: Partly cloudy skies and more seasonable temperatures return, with a high temperature of 44 degrees.

If our daily highs don't exceed 5 degrees F, then we will at least tie that dubious mark.
