Frigid, wind chills in the single digits across the Philly region

This will likely be the coldest Christmas in more than twenty years.

A Wind Chill Advisory goes into effect at 6 p.m. and lasts until 10 a.m. on Christmas Eve. This is for wind chills as low as -10 to -20. You definitely need layers, hats, gloves etc. if you are heading outside, even if for just a short period of time.
