The National Weather Service is warning Washington, D.C. residents of extreme cold temperatures caused by wind chill tonight.

From 12 a.m. until 6 p.m. on Tuesday, NWS predicts temperatures to feel like 15-below-zero. 

The actual temperature will drop into "single digits overnight," the NWS said.

Tuesday temperatures are predicted to rise to the teens, but with winds up to 25 mph and gusts up to 35 mph, it's going to feel a lot colder, the NWS said. 

"Low temperatures and wind chill could cause frostbite and lead to hypothermia," said the D.C. Homeland Security and Emergency Management Agency. 

"If you have to go outdoors in these conditions please dress warm with a coat, hat and gloves."
