Time to bundle up, again

It’s time to bundle up, again.

Below-zero temperatures are expected tonight, and the National Weather Service has issued a wind chill advisory until 11 a.m. Wednesday.

A wind chill advisory is issued when wind will combine with cold temperatures “to create dangerously cold conditions for exposed skin,” the weather service said.

“If you will be outdoors use common sense and dress warmly,” the weather service said, “making sure that all exposed skin is covered. If possible, avoid prolonged exposure to the cold to prevent frostbite and hypothermia.”

Tonight’s low is expected to be about minus 5 degrees. With wind of 5 to 7 mph, the wind chill will be as low as minus 15.

Wednesday’s high is expected to be about 13 degrees, but the wind chill will remain as low as minus 15. A little snow is likely Wednesday night, with a low of about 7 degrees and a wind chill as low as minus 10 degrees.

On Thursday, the high is predicted to be 12, with wind chill values as low as minus 9.  The Thursday night low is expected to be minus 6.

Friday’s high and low temperatures will be about the same, in the 13- to 14-degree range, the weather service said.

High temperatures Saturday and Sunday are expected to be in the 20s, with lows in the single-digits.

Subzero weather is expected to return Monday, when the high is predicted to be 10 and the low around minus 8.
