The temperature readings just after 8:30 a.m. Tuesday varied on local marquees, from 10 degrees at Sampson Community College to 11 degrees near downtown Clinton and 18 degrees at the Sampson County Agri-Exposition Center. Regardless of the figure, the cold weather, which prompted local school delays, was letting its presence be known as Sampson and surrounding counties stayed under a wind chill advisory Tuesday with gusts making temperatures feel sub-zero.
