Wind chill advisory sent

Wind chill advisory sent

It is bitter cold and wind chill advisories have been issued.

Due to the extended cold snap, it's recommended that everyone reduce time spent outdoors during this period due to the increased likelihood of hypothermia and frost bite. A steady stream of icy air will continue to pour into West Michigan with wind chills below zero both Saturday and Sunday nights. And New Year's Eve celebrations, if they are outside, could be below zero. The chart is calculated for wind speeds up to 60 miles per hour, and for air temperatures as low as -35 degree Fahrenheit. Actual temperatures tonight will be near -10, but our wind chills will be around -15 to -30. If the fireworks display doesn't take your breath away, perhaps wind chills near 2 below will.

Very cold wind chills are expected in the advisory area, and can cause frostbite to exposed skin in as little as 30 minutes.

Temperatures will moderate some through the week ahead with high temperatures returning to the 20s.

Winter Weather Advisory for areas close to Lake Ontario, for Niagara and Orleans counties, and also Wyoming counties from early Saturday morning to early Sunday morning for 4 to 8 inches of snow, especially closer to the lakeshore, and higher elevations in Wyoming. There is a slight chance of snow later tonight. Skies should clear partially on Monday night for some. Decreasing cloud cover, becoming partly cloudy will allow for additional cooling, with lows 5 to 15 below zero.
