As a winter weather system that's been grabbing the headlines makes it way along the coast, the big story in its wake will be the frosty temperatures. In the Triad and High Country, the main issue will be wind chill, according to the National Weather Service.

Forecaster Jim Hudgins says the arctic front will cause temperatures to drop and the blustery conditions will pick up.

“The wind chills with this event will be particularly cold and colder than anything we've seen here probably in the last couple of years at least,” says Hudgins.

This could result in warnings in the mountains and advisories across the Piedmont.  

The National Weather Service advises individuals to avoid frostbite and hypothermia by dressing in layers, covering exposed skin and limiting time outside.

Hudgins says after the dry, cold conditions of this week, there's another small system headed this way early next week which could bring mixed precipitation.
