Wind chill warning

The National Weather Service says a wind chill warning remains in effect for the region until 9 a.m. Wednesday, and wind chill readings Tuesday and Tuesday night could be “extremely dangerous.”

Temperatures are expected to remain at or below zero into Wednesday, the weather service said, and morning lows Tuesday could be 15 to 20 degrees below zero.

These low temperatures, combined with the wind, could result in wind chill values from 30 degrees below zero to as low as 45 degrees below at times, the weather service said.

Under those conditions, it can take only a few minutes to get frostbite on exposed skin, the weather service said.

The weather service forecast for Findlay calls for widespread blowing snow on Tuesday, with a high near zero and wind chill values as low as minus 45. It will be breezy with a southwest wind of 21 to 23 mph, with gusts as high as 34 mph, the weather service said.

Tuesday night, there will be widespread blowing snow before 3 a.m., then a slight chance of snow showers after 3 a.m. The low will be about minus 1. With a southwest wind of 9 to 17 mph, wind chill values will be as low as 21 below.
