Wind Chills Drop Below Zero Again

02 January 2018

Thomas Wasula, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service, said winds of 5 to 15 miles per hour on Sunday evening will make the temperatures hovering around 0 feel even colder.

"It's downright bitter cold", he said. Lows tonight will fall into the upper single digits and teens. A high temperature of -6° was the coldest daytime high since January of 1997. Otherwise, the main story line tonight will be the cold temperatures and low wind chills. Overnight lows will range from 7 to 12 degrees. Even though the thermometer will read 20°, it'll feel more like it's in the single digits thanks to winds driving out of the north at 10 to 15 miles per hour. A few areas will pick up on a few snow showers.

It'll be even colder for the first day of 2018, but before we get there.... Mostly sunny skies won't help the temperatures much, with afternoon highs topping out in the low 20s.

Special Weather Statement, Wind Chill Advisory issued for Ohio Co
Strengthening northwest winds will direct a surge of arctic-source cold into northern IL and northwest IN on Sunday night. Monday. "A Winter Storm Warning is in effect until 6 pm for western Grant and western Pendleton Counties".

Cold wind chills can cause frostbite in as little as 30 minutes to exposed skin. This means lows will also drop to between 10 and 20 degrees Monday night. Places such as Boston are on track to break the longest stretch of below-20-degrees days in its recorded history.

Another brutal shot of cold air settles in after our quick hitting snow, Wednesday.
