Watches & Warnings

Wind Chill Warning
Issued: 2:44 PM EST Feb. 13, 2016 – National Weather Service

... Wind chill warning remains in effect until noon EST Sunday...

* locations... southern Connecticut... the lower Hudson Valley and
portions of northeast New Jersey.

* Hazard types... strong winds and dangerous to potentially life
threatening wind chills.

* Timing... coldest wind chills late tonight into early Sunday
morning.

* Wind chill... from 25 to 30 degrees below zero.

* Winds... northwest winds 20 to 30 mph with gusts up to 45 mph.

* Cold impacts... the frigid conditions will be extremely
dangerous to those venturing outside. Prolonged exposure will
cause frostbite. The combination of very low wind chills and
frigid air temperatures have the potential to result in frozen
pipes... frostbite and hypothermia.

* Wind impacts... scattered tree limbs and branches downed.
Isolated power outages.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A wind chill warning means the combination of very cold air and
strong winds will create dangerously low wind chill values. This
will result in frost bite and lead to hypothermia or death if
precautions are not taken. Outdoor exposure should be limited. If
you are heading outdoors... dress in layers and keep your hands
and head covered to protect against frostbite





Special Statement
Issued: 4:35 AM EST Feb. 13, 2016 – National Weather Service

... Dangerously cold wind chills tonight into Sunday morning...

* temperatures tonight into early Sunday morning will fall to zero
to 3 degrees below zero in and around the New York City and New
Jersey Metro... and Long Island... and coastal Connecticut. Temps
will fall to 5 to 10 degrees below across interior portions of
northeast New Jersey... the lower Hudson Valley... and southern
Connecticut. Wind chill values during this time are expected to
reach life threatening levels as cold as 20 to 30 degrees below
zero.

* High temperatures on Sunday will only be in the teens... with
wind chills likely not rising above zero until mid to late
afternoon.

* Cold spells of this magnitude bring a risk of frostbite and
hypothermia for anyone who does not take proper precautions. In
addition... frozen pipes and overworked furnaces could leave your
house without heat or running water... and car batteries run the
risk of dying.

* Never venture outdoors without wearing gloves... a hat and
several layers of clothing. Wind chill values late Saturday
night into Sunday morning could lead to frostbite in less than
30 minutes if proper precautions are not taken.

* Run water at a trickle and keep Cabinet doors open to prevent
pipes from freezing.

* Never use a stove or oven to heat your home or use an open flame
to melt frozen pipes. Many house fires result from these
practices.

* Check tire pressure and your car battery. Be sure your car has
a winter safety kit that includes a blanket... warm clothes and
gloves in case your car breaks down or becomes stranded.

* Take extra steps to keep your pets warm and know their limits to
cold.
