The lowest wind chills the region has seen in nearly 20 years will be at their most extreme on Monday, when the National Weather Service says temperatures will feel like -40 to -50 degrees.

That’s cold enough to cause frostbite and hypothermia within minutes and is potentially life-threatening, according to the National Weather Service, which urges people to stay indoors.

Wind chills of at least -30 are expected through Tuesday morning, according to the National Weather Service, which said regular temperatures Sunday night through Monday morning would range from 15 to 20 below zero. Monday’s high will be a record of just -10 degrees to -20 degrees.
