coldThe temperatures tonight will be colder than the lows over the last couple years. It will be -4 by tomorrow morning. The wind will continue to gust over 20 mph. That will mean wind chills will make you feel as cold as -15 to -30.
This wind chill level can damage skin within 10 to 15 minutes. Keep covered and make sure you have plenty of gasoline in your car, a cell phone, blankets, extra winter gear like coats, gloves and hats in your vehicle.
