   A Wind Chill Advisory means that very cold air and strong winds from the west at 15 to 25 mph. gusting to 30 mph will combine to generate wind chills of five to 15 degrees below zero. Temperatures will be in the upper 20s to around 30 degrees. Lows tonight will be in the single digits. Thursday’s high temps will only reach the teens.
