(Update) Wind Chill Advisory extended to all area counties


February 12th, 2020 by Ric Hanson

The National Weather Service has extended the coverage area for a WIND CHILL ADVISORY to include the entire KJAN listening area. The WIND CHILL ADVISORY remains in effect from 12-a.m. until Noon Thursday, for Audubon-Guthrie-Dallas-Cass-Adair-Madison-Adams-Union-Taylor and Ringgold Counties, and from 10-p.m. tonight until 9-a.m. Thursday, for Pottawattamie-Mills-Montgomery-Fremont-Page Counties.

Temperatures will plummet and it is possible that wet or slushy roads could flash freeze, creating icy spots on roadways Wednesday evening. Wind Chills as low as -20 to -30 can be expected overnight tonight into mid-day Thursday. The cold wind chills could cause frostbite on exposed skin in as little as 30 minutes. Winter Weather & Wind Chill Advisories are in effect for those counties along and north of Highway 30. (See https://www.weather.gov/dmx/) for details.
