Breezy winds overnight, out of the west 5-15 mph and gusts over 25 mph also possible. Wind chills into early Wednesday as cold as -10 degrees expected.

An arctic front crosses the region Wednesday. Frigid temperatures and strong winds combined create dangerously cold wind chill values. Actual temperatures only reach into the single digits and winds out of the west 10-20 mph with gusts over 30 mph. Wind chill values during the day as cold as -30 degrees expected. Frostbite can happen in under 30 minutes to exposed skin, so it’s important to limit outdoor exposure. Chance for snow showers continues in the morning to evening. Total snowfall of a dusting to 1″ for most of the Twin Tiers. Strong winds drop visibility with blowing snow. Lows Wednesday night near -10 degrees and wind chills as cold as -30 to -35 degrees expected. Frostbite can happen in as little as 10 minutes to exposed skin with these wind chill values.

Dangerously cold wind chills continue through Thursday with highs near 10 degrees and winds staying strong. Most staying dry, but some lake-enhanced showers to our north and west possible. Mainly dry conditions continue into the weekend along with a warming trend. Highs reaching into the 40s by Sunday, but this comes along with our next storm system. Chance for a wintry mix to rain returns into early next week.
