The weather warmed up to the 20s this weekend, but will plummet overnight when temperatures fall to minus 4. Monday only has a high of 2 degrees with a low of minus 4, according to the National Weather Service in Buffalo.

That has prompted the Weather Service to issue a wind chill warning for Orleans County and much of central and western New York from midnight tonight until Tuesday morning.

The wind chill values could fall as low as 25 to 35 below zero, which could lead to frostbite and hypothermia if people are not dressed properly.
