Wind Chill Advisory in Effect Until Mid-Morning


Bundle up if you’re heading out this morning. The entire WKVI listening area is under a wind chill advisory until noon EST/11 a.m. CST today. A combination of falling temperatures and brisk west winds will make it feel like it’s 10 to 20 below zero. Wind chills this low can lead to frostbite of exposed skin in 30 minutes and hypothermia if precautions aren’t taken. Wear a hat and gloves if you do go out. The National Weather Service is also tracking a large snow storm that could hit our area on Sunday and hang around through next Tuesday. It’s too soon to say with certainty how much snow we will get or how long it will stick around, but you may want to stock up on groceries and other essential items now.
