348 AM CST MON JAN 21 2013

DANGEROUSLY COLD WIND CHILLS WILL CONTINUE THROUGH THIS MORNING. A REINFORCING SHOT OF ARCTIC AIR IS DROPPING INTO THE STATE EARLY THIS MORNING. INCREASING NORTHWEST WINDS OF 15 TO 25 MPH COMBINED WITH TEMPERATURES FALLING DOWN TO 10 TO 15 BELOW NORTH AND ZERO TO 5 BELOW OVER CENTRAL IOWA WILL CREATE DANGEROUS WIND CHILLS.

AREA COUNTIES: CRAWFORD-CARROLL-AUDUBON-GUTHRIE- DALLAS:

A WIND CHILL ADVISORY REMAINS IN EFFECT UNTIL NOON CST TODAY.

WIND CHILLS WILL DROP TO 20 BELOW TO 25 BELOW WITH LITTLE IMPROVEMENT OCCURRING THROUGH THE MORNING HOURS. FROSTBITE CAN EASILY OCCUR IF YO U ARE EXPOSED TO THE ELEMENTS FOR MORE THAN 30 MINUTES WITHOUT PROPER WINTER WEATHER CLOTHING.

A WIND CHILL ADVISORY MEANS THAT VERY COLD AIR AND WIND WILL COMBINE TO GENERATE LOW WIND CHILLS. THIS WILL RESULT IN FROST BITE AND LEAD TO HYPOTHERMIA IF PRECAUTIONS ARE NOT TAKEN. IF YOU MUST VENTURE OUTDOORS…MAKE SURE YOU WEAR A HAT AND GLOVES.
