Dangerously cold weather will hold a grip on the Tri-State area through Monday with wind chills that make it feel even colder.
Temperatures will plunge into the single digits with blustery conditions creating wind chills that will feel well below zero.
The entire region was under a wind advisory through Monday. Winds of 20 mph to 30 mph were expected, with gusts as high as 50 mph.
Advisories cover much of the region with wind chills as low as 15 below zero expected in portions of northeast New Jersey, southern Connecticut and southeast New York into Monday afternoon.
The cold wind chills could cause frostbite on exposed skin in as little as 30 minutes.
Meteorologists expect wind chills of 25 to 35 below zero upstate through Monday afternoon. In the Lower Hudson Valley, there’s concern for flash freezing on the roads.
The cold will begin to moderate by Tuesday with temperatures in the Albany area expected to reach the low 20s, while Buffalo could see mid- to upper 20s.
