Dress in layers and wear a hat, mittens and a scarf. For the late nighters ringing in the New Year, expect a wind chill of 14º by 9:00pm, and 9º by midnight. Frostbite and hypothermia can occur in 10 to 30 minutes in these conditions. A Wind Chill Advisory is issued when cold will combine with wind to produce risky wind chill values below zero. The moon will rise after 5:00pm New Year's Day night.
Tuesday will be sunny with a high of 22 and a low of 8. After a brief shot at normal temperatures Saturday, we'll be seeing daily highs and morning lows well below normal readings for a while.
What a way to end 2017....tracking some of the coldest air of the season.

Very cold wind chills expected. "It's what we get here, but you know, it didn't stop us from getting out and having fun, having a good time", said Brian Stein.

Happy New Year! The frigid air remains locked in place as we begin 2018 and it looks like that cold air will linger into a good part of this week. Our current air mass originated in the Arctic.
