Those wind gusts will blow any body heat away from the body's core, effectively causing the body to lose more heat than it is able to produce and chilling the internal temperature to possibly risky levels (below 95 degrees Fahrenheit). Further north in Nashville and Memphis, "feels like" conditions will dip to near zero degrees around midnight. Skies will become partly cloudy overnight, with temperatures falling to the middle single digits below zero. Coldest temperatures that we have seen in a long time will settle in.
Clouds will roll back into the area tonight as Clipper-type system dives makes its way across the Great Lakes and into the Northeast. The below average temperatures will last through all of next week.

New Year's Day is predicted to have a high of only 25 degrees, which would be the coldest since 1940 and the sixth coldest New Year's Day on record. Highs will be between 0-14° in the afternoon (with wind chills below zero.) It will be extremely cold as we ring in the New Year Sunday night. Temperatures will remain mired in the 20s with wind chills in the single digits and 10s. The sun has warmed us nicely today into the lower 50s, much closer to where should be for this time of year.
Arctic air is settlings in and wind will be picking up. Hopefully, this will be the start of a bit of a warming trend.
