With temperatures set to drop dramatically overnight, Ottawa Public Health has issued a frostbite advisory.

With the wind chill, temperatures are expected to drop to -32C overnight Sunday, which can easily lead to frostbite on exposed skin.

Public health is encouraging people to dress for the weather, including dressing in layers and making sure scarves, hats and gloves cover exposed skin.
