    A wind chill advisory remains in effect for Litchfield County through 11 a.m. The good news is that winds are dying down and without that, today shouldn't feel quite as cold as Thursday morning.

    Temperatures dipped below 0 in parts of the state Thursday night and the start to Friday is cold, with temperatures around 4 degrees inland, 9 degrees along the shoreline and 0 in the hills at 7 a.m. Things do warm up, with temperatures in the 20s for much of the state and the teens in the hills.

    The governor has activated the state Severe Weather Protocol for those in need of shelter. Warming centers are open across the state and those in need of help should contact 211 for more information.
