Wind Chill Advisory Issued Ahead Of Bitter Cold

The National Weather Service has issued a Special Weather Statement and a Wind Chill Advisory for Ohio County ahead of a possible record cold stretch.

"A Winter Storm Warning is in effect until 6 pm for western Grant and western Pendleton Counties". Once again, we will be under a Wind Chill Advisory for the rest of the night and into Sunday. The National Weather Service says these cold temperatures can cause frostbite in as little as 30 minutes of exposed skin. Northwest winds will kick around 15 miles per hour, with gusts up to 25 miles per hour.

Wind chills of 35 to 45 below zero are expected for Sunday, New Year's Eve, and into the first morning of 2018 on Monday, Jan. 1. And New Year's Eve celebrations, if they are outside, could be below zero. Wind chills could range from 5 degrees below zero to 25 degrees below zero.

The high on New Year's Day on Monday is expected to be about 3 degrees above zero.

The combination of cold temperatures down into the single digits, below zero in some spots, combined with steady winds will create unsafe wind chill values.

Low temperatures New Year's morning will also be close to breaking some records. At night, skies will become cloudy, and lows will dip to 14 degrees.
