Temperatures will drop to the single digits and as low as -5 degrees Tuesday morning. The wind chill is expected to hit as low as 25 degrees below zero.
The wind chill advisory remains in effect until Tuesday afternoon in several counties besides Oakland, including: Wayne, Washtenaw, Macomb, Livingston and Genesee.
The NWS warns that prolonged skin exposure to the cold can result in frostbite and hypothermia. It's recommended that exposure to the elements is limited.
