[December 21, 2008]  Very cold Canadian air will continue to move into the area Sunday, with temperatures only in the single digits. Northwest winds of 20 to 30 mph will result in wind chill readings from 15 to 25 degrees below zero.

These wind chills will continue into Sunday night, although winds will begin to diminish.

In areas along and north of Route 136, ice accumulations remain on many tree limbs and power lines from the ice storm Thursday night. The strong gusty winds could cause additional power outages through Sunday night.

Be cautious while driving, and prepare for the possibility of being without power.

A wind chill advisory means that very cold air and strong winds will combine to generate low wind chills. This will result in frostbite and lead to hypothermia if precautions are not taken.

If you must venture outdoors, make sure you wear a hat and gloves.
