roads and limited visibilities…and use caution while driving.

rnk.skywarn@noaa.gov or by calling the National Weather Service

A Wind Chill Advisory is issued when strong winds will combine
with cold temperatures for several hours to create dangerously
cold conditions for exposed skin.

Use caution while outside. Wear appropriate clothing, a hat, and
gloves.
