Dangerous Wind Chills

Posted at 5:29 AM

The combination of frigid air and west to northwest winds will keep wind chills below zero until at least Wednesday afternoon. The most dangerous conditions are expected this morning. Wind chills will ease somewhat this afternoon...but then fall again Tuesday night.  

Wind chill warning remains in effect until noon cst today... the most dangerous conditions are expected early this morning...when wind chill indices will drop to 40 below zero at times. Wind chills this low can cause frostbite in around 15 minutes. Although wind chills will moderate somewhat later today...they will probably remain low enough to warrant a wind chill advisory be posted this afternoon through Wednesday morning.

A wind chill warning means that very cold air and winds will generate dangerously low wind chill values. This will result in frostbite and lead to hypothermia or death if precautions are not taken. If you must venture outdoors...make sure you wear a hat and gloves.
