National Weather Service forecasts have subzero temperatures through Thursday, when the high is just 4 degrees, and lows as cold as minus 25 through the rest of the week. The weather service in Grand Forks has issued a wind chill warning that will remain in effect until noon Wednesday, based on anticipated wind chills of 25 to 40 below zero.

Long duration snow event is expected to sweep over Montana Thursday through Sunday morning.

Wear layers of lightweight clothing to stay warm.

"Wind chills of this magnitude could cause frostbite in less than 30 minutes", the service said in a hazardous weather advisory.

There's a slim chance that York, Chester and Lancaster counties could see snow showers or freezing rain this week, according to two top weather outlets.

With snow falling at a rate of up to 3 inches per hour, the National Weather Service said Erie has picked up at least 58 inches since the storm began on Christmas Eve. Temperatures will sit well below freezing, with highs in the upper 20s.




"The colder it gets the more people will try to get out of the cold", he said.

Moody said most of the calls were for people who needed help getting out of snowy driveways, had dead auto batteries or had locked their keys in the vehicle while warming it up. Otherwise, he said, "Your body will start pulling blood to the vital organs and the first thing to go is the fingers and toes".

"If you do travel, make sure you have extra warm clothes or blankets in the auto in case you do get stuck or broken down".

Forecasters suggest layering up even if you only expect to be outside a short time.
