The weather service says Friday's deep freeze is a preview of next week, which could bring more than a half-foot of snow to parts of IL and the potential for the "coldest stretch in years". This will easily be the coldest air of the season, and it's going to stick around through the weekend.

Extreme cold warnings are issued when very cold temperatures or wind chill creates an elevated risk to health such as frost bite and hypothermia.

The brunt of the cold air will be felt Friday morning with wind chills between -20 and -30 degrees!

A Wind Chill Advisory also remains in effect from 4 p.m.to 9 a.m. tomorrow. Accumulating snowfall returns to the forecast on Sunday through Monday.
