ARCTIC WIND CHILLS TONIGHT

A wind chill advisory will be in effect from 6pm this evening to 8am Saturday. Wind chill values will drop into the 20 to 30 below range, due to the winds combined with temperatures in the single digits and teens below zero. Winds will be out of the northwest at 5 to 15-mph.

Those with interests outdoors should dress warmly and cover exposed skin, as frostbite and hypothermia are possible if the proper precautions are not taken.

A wind chill advisory means that very cold air and strong winds will combine to generate low wind chills. This will result in frost bite and lead to hypothermia if precautions are not taken. If you must venture outdoors, make sure you wear a hat and gloves.
