COLUMBUS, Ohio – Bitter cold temperatures and gusty winds followed on the heels of the first winter storm of 2014, which dumped five inches of snow on central Ohio.

Authorities say at least two people were killed in weather-related crashes in northeast Ohio on Thursday as the storm dumped 8-10 inches of snow around Cleveland and Toledo.

The National Weather Service issued a Wind Chill Advisory for Friday morning (see above), when “feels-like” temperatures dropped as low as 17 below zero in Delaware and 10 below in Columbus, prompting school officials to delay the start of classes or cancel them altogether.

Temperatures and wind chills will continue to remain in the teens and single digits Friday with winds causing blowing and drifting snow on roads.

After a warm up into double digits Saturday and Sunday, temperatures will dive back down, with highs throughout the state from only 0 to 5 for Monday. And it’ll stay bitterly cold through most of next week.

Thousands of flights have already been canceled Friday at Cleveland Hopkins Airport, as well as Chicago’s O’Hare and New York’s LaGuardia Airport.

The storm is impacting more than 100 million people and causing the temporary closure of some major highways in states like New York. Some areas in Boston could be buried under two feet of new snow by this afternoon.
