CHICAGO -- It is just brutally cold out Sunday night, with the windchill well below zero.

The National Weather Service is warning Chicagoans of the dangerously cold temperatures, which can cause frostbite very quickly. A Wind Chill Advisory is in effect from 9 p.m. Sunday until noon Monday.

Folks headed to Sunday’s Blackhawks game couldn't wait to get inside; some who got there early had to wait in line before they opened the doors.

Earlier Sunday near Niles and Dempster, there was a water main break , the water filling part of the street and freezing around car tires. At least one car got stuck as public works crews were on the job trying to fix the problem.

The wind chill will range tonight between 15 to 25 below zero -- and can cause frost bite in less than half an hour.

In Chicago, you can call 311 for all warming center locations. The Illinois Tollway launched around-the-clock zero-weather road patrols Sunday, helping stranded drivers and responding to calls that come into Illinois State Police.

Drivers are reminded to keep their cell phones fully charged and vehicles gassed up before hitting the road.
