Wind chill warning expires; wind chill advisory issued

The National Weather Service has replaced the two-day wind chill warning with a lesser wind chill advisory.

The wind chill advisory will be in effect until 3 p.m., Thursday.

Says the NWS:

A Wind Chill Advisory means that cold air and the wind will combine to create low wind chills. Frostbite and hypothermia can occur if precautions are not taken. Make sure you wear a hat and gloves.

The latest, local NWS forecast calls for wind chill of -30 to -20 during the advisory period, with wind chill improving steadily after that. By midnight, there will be negligible wind chill with an air temp of -1. Snow is expected Thursday night between 6 p.m. and 1 a.m. and may result in less than a half inch of accumulation (Note: Amount of accumulation updated as of 4:45 p.m. It was changed from an earlier report. — DH)

That warming trend is going to continue through the weekend. Friday’s high is forecast at 19, Saturday’s at 37 and Sunday’s at 45. Monday may reach 49. There is a chance of rain and freezing rain Saturday and Sunday and rain Monday.
