Temperatures are expected to plunge below zero overnight, according to the National Weather Service in Buffalo.

With the wind chill , though, it will feel more like 20 to 30 degrees below zero, , said meteorologist Jon Hitchcock.

The City is reminding residents to limit excess travel and the amount of time spent outdoors, cover any exposed skin, and check on the safety of elderly family, pets and neighbors.

"Use common sense — if you don't have to be out, don't go out," said Norman Jones, commissioner of Environmental Services. "Stay in, grab a good book, watch a movie."

City residents are asked to call 311 if they lose heat or would like to report a neighbor or family member who needs assistance during this time.

The Heat Sweep will remain in effect until further notice.
