Winter storm: Below-zero wind chills hammer the Northeast as extreme cold weather moves in

February 04, 2023

“Our state is facing dangerously cold temperatures & extreme wind chills today & tomorrow,” Gov. Please limit time outdoors, wear layers, & use caution with alternative heat sources.”The dangerously cold winds are descending on the region from Canada, putting entire states at risk. What looks like safe and normal driving conditions quickly deteriorate into almost zero visibility stretches of roadway,” Maine State Police said in a Facebook post. People bundle up in bitterly cold temperatures and high winds in Manhattan as deep cold spread across the Northeast on Friday. Farther south, severe cold weather also led to ongoing power outages across Texas and Arkansas as an ice storm lashed the region, killing at least eight people.
