A Wind Chill Advisory remains in effect for the Greater Capital District, Mohawk and Schoharie valleys, southeast Adirondacks, Taconics and the Mid-Hudson Valley, through 10 a.m., Wed., Jan. 8. Wind chill readings may drop to less than -15 or -29. West winds of 15 to 25 mph, with gusts of 35 to 45 mph, are possible.
