Wind Chill Advisory Issued for Owensboro and the Tri-State
Brrrrrrr! And, man, is THAT an understatement. It's entirely possible my lips won't be able to make that sound come midweek.
The National Weather Service has issued a Wind Chill Advisory for Owensboro and the tri-state.
It's the kind of advisory we should ALWAYS take seriously.
Here's what the NWS had to say:
...WIND CHILL ADVISORY IN EFFECT FROM MIDNIGHT TUESDAY NIGHT TO NOON CST WEDNESDAY... * WHAT...Very cold wind chills expected. Wind chills as low as 10 to 20 below zero likely. * WHERE...Portions of southwest Indiana, southeast Missouri, western Kentucky and southern Illinois, north of a line from Marble Hill Missouri, to Vienna Illinois to Calhoun Kentucky. * WHEN...From midnight Tuesday night to noon CST Wednesday. * ADDITIONAL DETAILS...The cold wind chills could cause frostbite on exposed skin in as little as 30 minutes. PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS... A Wind Chill Advisory means that cold air and the wind will combine to create low wind chills. Frostbite and hypothermia can occur if precautions are not taken. Make sure you wear a hat and gloves.
I'm gonna try multiple hats and gloves, actually.
ACTUALLY, I'm going to try to stay indoors as much as possible. I recommend the same for you, as well.
Wind chills in the negative DOUBLE digits are NOTHING to mess with.
