Watches & Warnings

Wind Chill Warning
Issued: 3:49 AM EST Feb. 14, 2016 – National Weather Service

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

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

* Hazard types... dangerous to potentially life threatening wind
chills.

* Timing... this morning.

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

* Winds... northwest 10 to 20 mph with gusts up to 30 mph.

* 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.

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: 7:58 AM EST Feb. 14, 2016 – National Weather Service

... Dangerously cold wind chills this morning...

* temperatures this morning range from near zero to 10 degrees
below during this time... coupled with strong... gusty winds... are
expected to produce life threatening wind chills as cold as 20
to 30 degrees below zero.

* High temperatures today 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.
