Special Weather Statement
Issued: 8:41 AM Feb. 3, 2023 – National Weather Service
...Below Zero Wind Chills Tonight into Saturday Morning...

An arctic cold front will move across the region early this
morning, bringing some of the coldest air of the season. Along
with gusty winds approaching 40 mph, this will produce wind chills
of 5 to 15 below zero Friday night into Saturday morning. Some
isolated values of less than 15 below are possible. With an
anomalously warm winter, many are not acclimated to such cold
temperatures and such cold wind chills could result in hypothermia
if precautions are not taken.
