Today brings a record-breaking freeze. The minus 10 degrees overnight outside the Buffalo Niagara International Airport broke a record of minus 8 set in 1904, The Buffalo News reported.

In Orleans County, it was minus 5 in Albion at 7:30 a.m. The National Weather Service has issued a wind chill warning until 10 a.m. today. The wind chill could feel as harsh as minus 25 degrees.

The temperature should reach 7 today, before falling to minus 2 for the overnight low, the Weather Service said. Tuesday it should “warm up” to a high of 17.
