It's cold outside.

People in the Chicago area should pull out their heavy coats and gloves after arctic temperatures continued to put the deep freeze on the area Tuesday morning.

AccuWeather forecasters have said temperatures will climb to 17 degrees this afternoon, but the wind chill will make it feel like zero degrees outside.

It's currently 10 degrees outside, but the wind chill is making it feel like it's negative 10 degrees, forecasters said.

On top of freezing temperatures, the National Weather Service has issued a winter weather advisory for the Chicago area due to the potential of snow accumulating between midnight and 10 a.m. Wednesday morning.

Forecasters said between 2-inches and 4-inches of snow is expected to fall between 5 a.m. and 8 a.m. Wednesday.
