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.
