Wind chill values late Saturday night into Sunday morning could lead to frostbite in less than 30 minutes if proper precautions are not taken. * Run water at a trickle and keep Cabinet doors open to prevent pipes from freezing. * Never use a stove or oven to heat your home or use an open flame to melt frozen pipes. Many house fires result from these practices. * Check tire pressure and your car battery. Be sure your car has a winter safety kit that includes a blanket...warm clothes and gloves in case your car breaks down or becomes stranded. * Take extra steps to keep your pets warm and know their limits to cold. -- Sunday Feb.14 16,09:24 AM Weather  |  LIRR  |  Traffic  |  Traffic Cams |  Weather News
