US National Weather Service Binghamton NY

WIND CHILL WARNING REMAINS IN EFFECT FOR ALL OF CENTRAL NY:

Extremely cold today, for our Martin Luther King Junior Holiday. Gusty winds and (where dry snowpack exists) areas of blowing/drifting snow. If you have to spend time outdoors, protect yourself accordingly against the Arctic elements. The wind will diminish tonight but temperatures will remain very cold - lows of 3 above to 10 below; even colder in northern Oneida County.

...WIND CHILL WARNING REMAINS IN EFFECT UNTIL 7 PM EST THIS
EVENING...

* WHAT...Dangerously cold wind chills. Wind chills as low as 35
below zero. Wind gusts as high as 40 mph causing blowing and
drifting snow.

* WHERE...Northern Oneida, Sullivan, Otsego, Chenango, Delaware,
Madison and Southern Oneida counties.

* WHEN...Lowest wind chills until 7 PM EST this evening. Winds
diminish tonight but wind chills will remain well below zero.

* ADDITIONAL DETAILS...The dangerously cold wind chills could
cause frostbite on exposed skin in as little as 10 minutes.

NWS says rigid northwest winds will cause dangerously low wind chills today. Winds will diminish tonight, but wind chills and in some cases actual temperatures will be subzero. Lake effect snow showers and flurries will persist today across much of Central
New York and at times into far northern Pennsylvania. Our next system may cause a wintry mix late Tuesday night into Wednesday.

Wind chills of -15 to -35 are already being realized on a widespread basis early this morning. Temperatures will not move much today...Climatologically speaking, this is the coldest time of year and so record low maxima range from only 0 to 3 degrees at our climate sites. We are not forecasting to break those records but we will be within a few degrees. Northern Oneida County, and some higher elevations spots of Central NY east of I-81, may not even get above zero today. Generally speaking, highs for Northeast PA-Central NY will be only in the single digits above zero, after starting off mostly below zero. This combined with continued gusty winds frequently reaching 25-35 mph with a few gusts perhaps to 40 mph at higher elevations, will keep wind chills at dangerous levels through the whole day.
