Posted: Updated:

A wind chill advisory is in effect through 12:00 p.m. for parts of the St. Louis area including St. Louis County and City. In St. Louis wind chills will be -10 to -15 with colder wind chills north, down to -20. Today will be sunny, but frigid with a low near 4 and a high near 16. Afternoon wind chills will range from -5 to 5.

While we won't get that record, this currently is the longest stretch of below freezing weather we've had in 34 years, since 1983.

This Morning: Low 4. Wind chills in St. Louis from -10 to -15, a bit colder farther north, down to -20. Mostly clear skies. Winds: Northwest 8-12 mph.
