Winds plus cold could bring frostbite
In case you hadn’t heard, the National Weather Service says it will be brutally cold tonight and tomorrow.
Here is the latest for the Fredericksburg region from NWS as of 6:30 p.m.
The wind chill advisory remains in effect from midnight tonight to 6 p.m. Tuesday.
The wind chill could be between 5 below to 15 below zero.
The lowest wind chills will occur overnight and into Tuesday morning.
Temperatures will fall into the teens tonight, and single digit-temperatures overnight. Tuesday brings a slight rise, back into the teens.
West winds are predicted between 20 and 30 mph with gusts up to 45 mph.
WARNING: Such cold should lead to frostbite and hypothermia this evening through Tuesday.
People are advised to wear a hat and gloves if they venture outside.
Stay warm and stay safe. And don’t forget to bring in your pets as I discuss on PetDish.
