The National Weather Service is warning about low temperatures and a wind chill that could hit 20 to 30 degrees below zero. It will be 0 to minus-5 out this morning combined with brisk winds.

“These dangerously low wind chills will result in a risk of hypothermia and frostbite for anyone outside for even a short period of time without proper clothing,” the Weather Service said. “If you must be outside this morning use common sense and dress warmly.”

The announcement applies to Orleans, Genesee, Niagara and Erie counties.
