Low Wind Chills and Freezing Temperatures Follows the Nor’easter

4 Jan 2018, 5:03 pm

Frigid temperatures and bitter wind chills are following the Nor’easter that is currently wrecking havoc on New England. Freeze Warnings continue for a second night in the Southeast, from Florida to Louisiana. Lows in the 20s are likely tomorrow morning from New Orleans to Jacksonville.

Wind Chill alerts cover nearly two dozen states from the Midwest to the Northeast. Wind chills may fall down to 35 below zero near the Great Lakes. The dangerously cold wind chills can cause frostbite in as little as 10 minutes to exposed skin. Make sure you wear a hat and gloves. Carry a winter survival kit if traveling, and have enough layers of clothes with you for temperatures outside of the vehicle. Hypothermia can occur if precautions are not taken.
