Central Siskiyou County Severe Watches & Warnings NOAA Weather Radio

Special Statement
Statement as of 1:12 PM PST on December 28, 2014

...Breezy and very cold weather this week...

An Arctic cold front will move through Monday and bring very cold air to the region this week. Snow is possible with the front tonight through Monday but little to no accumulation is expected.

As strong, cold, Arctic high pressure builds in from the north Monday night and Tuesday, gusty northeast winds will develop and continue into Wednesday. Winds of 10 to 20 mph along with cold temperatures will produce wind chills of 0 to 10 degrees below zero.

The strongest winds and lowest wind chill readings will occur over the mountains, but the coldest air will settle into the valleys. This will likely be the coldest weather of the season so far for all locations.

Conditions will moderate on Thursday.

Travelers and those venturing out of doors this week should be prepared for very cold weather, especially over the mountains. Hypothermia can set in rapidly, especially when the wind blows. Dress in layers, cover all skin, and pay attention to the signs of hypothermia including but not limited to shivering, loss of coordination, and confusion.
