The National Weather Service reports the wind chill makes it feel like -11 degrees outside.
The National Weather Service has issued a wind chill advisory for the region, and predicts snow accumulation of around 1-3 inches tonight. Wind gusts could get as fast as 29 mph today, reports the National Weather Service. The daytime snow accumulation is about 1 inch. Tonight's low is 7 degrees. The snow is caused by an arctic airmass that is moving into the area.
