An Arctic air mass spread over the area Monday afternoon causing bitterly cold temperatures. As a result, the Winter Weather Advisory was allowed to expire. Steady or slowly falling temperatures will keep wind chills bitterly cold Tuesday with wind chills expected to be as low as 15 below. Therefore the Wind Chill Warning was placed in effect until Wednesday.
With wind chills so low frostbite of exposed skin can occur in a matter of minutes in these conditions. Hypothermia or even death is possible with prolonged exposure or for those not properly dressed for the cold.
Please check on elderly relatives, friends and neighbors to make sure they are safe. If possible, bring pets indoors or make sure they have adequate shelter with dry bedding.
