Risky wind chills continue across the area

Risky wind chills continue across the area

All of the mid-state and southern Kentucky will experience risky wind chill values, raising the threat of frostbite and hypothermia.

A Wind Chill Advisory is in effect from 9 PM tonight until noon Tuesday for all of the Tennessee Valley. People venturing outdoors tonight will need to dress for the extremely cold conditions. Several layers do a better job keeping you warm than just a heavy coat. Frost bite and hypothermia can occur if precautions are not taken.

As far as actual temperatures, lows tonight will drop as lows as the minus teens before climbing in the single digits on Tuesday. In addition with these frigid temperatures and little recovery during the daytime hours this could cause problems for exposed plumbing pipes. Tomorrow will be sunny.

The extended forecast shows temperatures not rising above freezing until next Sunday.

Light lake effect snow will be falling today, with a bit of drifting snow possible as well. Rain will precede another cold front that will move through the Tennessee Valley on Monday. A Wind Chill Advisory means that cold air and the wind will combine to create low wind chills.
