Wind Chill Advisory In Effect As Temperatures Plummet Across The Lake Area

Don’t look now but following the winter weather we had on Friday, the lake area appears to be in the bullseye for another round of the stuff on Sunday and into Monday.

Mother Nature is expected to deliver to the lake area a couple inches of snow and single-digit to negative temperatures for the next few days…it’s a combination that Weatherology’s Cara Foster says is prompting various advisories to be issued.

Not because of the amount of snow or kind of mixture snow mixture that we are/could be getting. It’s things like the rapid freezing of wet roadways, which can cause very hazardous conditions. And also on top of that, the high winds.”

Early Sunday there was a Wind Chill Warning in effect, but that was set to expire at noon.
