…A cold night coming up west of the Blue Ridge…

An unusually cold airmass will bring cold temperatures and low 
wind chill values to locations west of the Blue Ridge through 
daybreak Tuesday morning. Overnight lows will bottom out generally
in the mid teens to around 20 degrees, and a northwest breeze 
will make for wind chill values down to the single digits. Hilltop
locations with a bit more wind will even see wind chills of zero 
to -5.

Anyone who will be outdoors late tonight or early Tuesday morning
should dress in layers to stay warm and cover any exposed skin. 
Avoid waiting for a school bus or other transportation in an 
exposed location Tuesday morning.
