Unsafe wind chills across Wisconsin

28 January 2019

Wind chill warnings are in affect for the Quad Cities and surrounding areas from 6 p.m. Thursday through noon on Friday, January 24 through 25.

A strong clipper system will sweep across the country ushering in the bitterly cold air and life-threatening wind chills.

Temperatures Friday morning in were 40-50 degrees below zero, without the wind. A south wind of 8 to 17 miles per hour will become west in the afternoon, and winds could gust as high as 25 miles per hour.

The Houston Texans and the Carolina Panthers will make their London debuts when they come across the Atlantic to play next season. Last week, several reports circulated connecting the Steelers to a 2019 matchup vs. the Chargers in Mexico City.

Wind chill can contribute to frostbite and to hypothermia both of which are unsafe and can cause permanent damage to the body or death. Lows will fall into the single digits for most of the area and the wind chill should dip below zero. Exposed skin in that of cold can be frost bitten in no more than 10 minutes. At times we might see some flurries passing by but no measurable snow is expected. Wind: W 10-15 miles per hour.

Today: Partly sunny and bitterly cold.

THURSDAY: Mostly Cloudy and Cold. "A quick coating to near an inch of snow is possible", according to a Special Weather Statement issued by the NWS.
