  • The advisory started at 3:19 AM January 29 and is expected to continue until noon today.
    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.
    Residents need to prepare for another bitter-cold night. Low wind chill readings are predicted to be from 10-12 degrees below zero with wind coming from the west at 5 to10 mph. Temperatures are expected to be mostly in the single digits below zero.
    Outdoor pets and livestock can be susceptible to these dangerous wind chills as well. Ensure animals have adequate shelter to get out or the wind or bring them inside if possible.
