There's no ball drop in Batavia, but it should still be noted that if you're celebrating New Year's Eve outside tonight, dress warmly.
The National Weather Service says an arctic air mass moved across the lower Great Lakes last night and will remain in place for the next couple of days.
The cold air combined with gusty winds this afternoon and evening will making it feel bitterly, bitterly cold.
The wind chill factor will bring temperatures down to low single digits and as cold as -5 in some areas.
The NWS advises anybody outside during this time to dress in layers of clothing, which help trap body heat better than a single layer.
You should also wear a hat because significant body head can be lost through your head.
