'Dangerous' wind chill continues to freeze region

The National Weather Service says the extreme cold can cause frostbite to exposed skin in as little as 30-minutes.

Snowfall has ended, but strong wind gusts today will result in blowing and drifting snow, reducing visibilities and accumulation on roads at times.

A wind chill advisory has been extended for central Pennsylvania until 10 a.m. Sunday, according to the National Weather Service at State College. Highs will barely reach the teens and with the wind still gusting at up to 35 miles per hour out of the northwest, it will feel like it's 5 to 15 below zero all day long.

Behind yesterday's Nor'Easter, the region is gearing up for the coldest air of the season so far, although that sounds hard to believe. Temperatures will only climb toward 7°F by Friday afternoon. "Intermittent lake-effect snow showers and squalls will continue through [today], with the Titusville area seeing 3-6 inches of snow during this time". This could turn into a freezing rain and ice situation and we will be monitoring this storm closely through the weekend. Highest totals will be found on the tallest peaks.

Carolina Panthers closing in on an extension for Ron Rivera
Carolina has earned four playoff berths over the past five seasons under Rivera, tied for the most in the NFC over that span. Per Blackmon, the two-year extension is worth $15.5 million, which is a pretty penny unless your name is Jon Gruden .

Only a few degrees milder on Sunday, but most communities will struggle to get out of the 20s once again.

Afternoon temperatures are expected to return back into the mid-20s, Sunday, and middle 30s, Monday. There will be a chance of rain late Thursday, then a rain/snow mix Friday. What will make this one different are the temperatures. More clouds on Tuesday with highs in the low and mid 50s.

Frigid conditions have also gripped other parts of the Northeast and are expected to last most of the weekend.
