Wind Chill Advisories expanded for dangerous wind chills
Windy conditions and frigid temperatures have caused the National Weather Service to expand coverage of our Wind Chill Advisories.
Counties now include Midland, Bay, Saginaw, Shiawassee, Genesee, Lapeer, Tuscola, Huron, and Sanilac counties.
The advisories will continue through 10am.
Wind chills from -10 to -15 degrees or colder are likely through this time period.
Frostbite can occur in as little as 30 minutes with unprotected skin at these temperatures.
Hypothermia is also a concern if precautions are not taken while outdoors for an extended period of time.
Hats, gloves, scarves, and heavy winter jackets are all great protection to use.
Stay with NBC25 and FOX66 for updates through the day on our cold temperatures.
