The end of the first day of November 2014 brought an end of Daylight Savings Time for the year and a blast of arctic air that sent wind chills into the teens.

A wind advisory scheduled to end at 7 a.m. Sunday was later extended to 9 a.m. with the thermometer hovering at or just below freezing over most of Floyd County and Southwestern Virginia.

With winds gusting above 25 miles per hour the wind chill is down to 15-17 degrees.

The thermometer is forecast to rise into the lower 40s Sunday before heading back down to a low of 27 overnight.

Warmer days with temperatures into the 60s are expected for Monday – Wednesday with lows well above freezing before another colder snap blows in.
