According to the NWS: 

"Arctic air will continue to rush in behind the departing cold front that moved through the region Saturday night. Northwest winds together with seasonably cold temperatures will create wind chill values of 25 to 40 below zero at times. Make sure to cover any exposed skin as best as possible. ...

"Wind chill values 25 below to 35 below zero could cause frostbite in minutes on exposed skin. ...

"A wind chill advisory means that very cold air and strong winds will combine to generate low wind chills. This will result in frost bite and lead to hypothermia if precautions are not taken. If you must venture outdoors .. make sure you wear a hat and gloves"
