The cold isn’t over. After temperatures fell below 0 for most of today, Monday’s temperature is forecast to reach a high of 5 degrees, following overnight lows of minus 10.

The National Weather Service has issued a hazardous weather outlook until 10 a.m. on Monday due to a wind chill that could fall to minus 30 degrees. That statement applies to Orleans and several other counties in western and central New York.

The Weather Service warns that “dangerous cold and potentially life-threatening wind chills through Monday morning could lead to frostbite and hypothermia if you are not dressed properly.”
