First, and perhaps most significant, a "wind chill advisory" is in effect until 1 p.m. Thursday.

The National Weather Service says the combination of frigid air and gusty winds could make the outdoor temperature feel as cold as 25 below zero.

Wind chills that low can cause frostbite on exposed skin in as little as 30 minutes, the weather service says.

The National Weather Service says sustained winds from the west will be 15 to 25 mph and that gusts up to 50 mph are possible.

Lastly, the weather service says, "high-impact snow squalls" are likely this afternoo... and early this evening, and a "snow squall warning" is in effect until 3:45 p.m.

The squalls are expected to move through the eastern Catskills between noon and 3 p.m. and the Hudson Valley between 2 and 4 p.m.
