Dressing for cold weather


Although snow totals for this weekend remain uncertain, one thing that does remain certain is that the first really cold snap of the season will affect us.

A very strong cold front will move the area New Years Eve and will drop temperatures into the single digits to teens with wind chill values between 10 and -10 by Saturday morning.

Highs Saturday will only be in the teens to lower 20s (with winter weather) and will fall into the 5 to -10 range with wind chill values in the -5 to -20 range by Sunday morning.

The first cold snap of the season is typically he most dangerous and results in the most cold weather related illnesses. Take this time to locate your cold weather clothing since we haven't had to use it much this season and be prepared to dress appropriately come this weekend.
