New Year Starts Cold but with Pay Raise

It's an unusually cold start to New Year's Day in Ohio.  The National Weather Service says overnight lows fell to near zero, with dangerously cold wind chills.  

A Wind Chill Advisory is in effect until noon for conditions that feel like ten-below.

But hourly workers in Ohio will begin to see fatter paychecks in the new year.  Today marks the beginning of yearly cost-of-living increases for the state's minimum wage.  

The state's entry-level wage went up at midnight to eight-dollars, 30-cents an hour.
