In addition to the heavy local snowfall, strong winds will combine with the arrival of a brutally cold air mass to send wind chill readings plummeting to below zero Wednesday night.

Better bundle up Dorothy!  This will be the  coldest ari mass of the season.

My take on how much snow this lake effect could generate and how long the cold wil last in tonight's WxLIVE at 8:45!  See you then.
