Bone-chilling weather gripped the region Monday morning with the wind chill making the “feels like” temperature well below the zero mark in many areas.

Single-digit temperatures were reported on Martin Luther King Day with the capital city's actual temperature hitting about 5 degrees. When the wind chill was factored in, it felt like -4 in Charleston, -13 in Beckley, -17 in Bluefield, -12 in Elkins, -8 in Clarksburg and -15 in Richwood.

The actual temperature was only expected to rebound to a high of about 20 degrees on Monday.

Dangerous weather prompted the opening of warming centers in Charleston.

Schools were closed throughout the region in observance of Martin Luther King Day, so kids were able to hunker down with their families at home.
