    Brutally cold temperatures continue Wednesday as much of our region remains below the freezing mark.

    The National Weather Service issued a wind chill advisory for Philadelphia, as well as multiple suburban counties, including Gloucester, Camden, Cumberland, Ocean, Atlantic, Cape May and parts of Burlington in New Jersey, and New Castle, Kent and Sussex in Delaware.

    Temperatures will reach highs in the mid-20s Wednesday afternoon, but it will feel like it is below 10 degrees outside as wind gusts approach 40 miles per hour.

    The severe cold follows a snowy Tuesday -- which led to icy road conditions during the Wednesday morning rush hour. Ice contributed to several crashes, including a deadly accident in West Oak Lane, Wednesday evening.

    The bitter cold will turn dangerous overnight as actual temperatures will fall into the single digits, nearing a record low of 2 degrees Thursday. Homeowners be wary as the frigid temps will put pipes at risk of freezing.

    Thursday will be the coldest day of the week with a high of just 22 and wind chills making it feel like it's 10 below zero despite the sunny skies. 

    We'll warm — slightly — as we head into the weekend with temps in the mid-30s.
