...WIND CHILL ADVISORY IN EFFECT FROM 9 PM THIS EVENING TO 10 AM
EST MONDAY...

* WHAT...Very cold wind chills expected. Expect wind chills to

  Pennsylvania, northeast Maryland, and all of Delaware.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

A Wind Chill Advisory means that cold air and the wind will
combine to create low wind chills. Frost bite and hypothermia can
occur if precautions are not taken. Make sure you wear a hat and
gloves.

Monday To Friday ........ 
Sub-zero wind chills are once again expected Monday night into
Tuesday morning and Thursday night through Friday night. Additional
Wind Chill Advisories may be needed, especially late in the week.

There is a potential for snowfall Wednesday night into Thursday.
Snowfall accumulations and the extent of impacts we see from this
system will ultimately depend on how close the offshore low tracks
to our area, which is still highly uncertain at this time.
