Wind chill advisory issued for parts of Oklahoma

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - A wind chill advisory has been issued for eastern and northern Oklahoma as bitterly cold air heads toward the state.

The advisory is in effect from Sunday night until midday Monday. Forecasters say wind chill values could be as cold as 20 degrees below zero Monday morning in the areas, with the coldest temperatures likely in northeastern Oklahoma.

On Sunday, many of the same areas saw snowfall. The National Weather Service says about 2 to 3 inches of snow fell in Ponca City, while Woodward, Enid and Stillwater all saw about 1 to 2 inches of snow.

The Emergency Medical Services Authority says paramedics responded Sunday to 16 vehicle crashes, eight falls and 2 reports of exposure to the cold.
