Weather Service warns about bitter cold
After a short respite from bitter cold temperatures, area residents will again be subjected to a deep freeze.
The National Weather Service has issued a wind chill warning for 6 p.m. Monday until 6 p.m. on Tuesday for both Orleans and Niagara counties.
On Tuesday, the high temperature is forecast at 6 degrees. The cold temperature combined with 25 to 35 mile per hour winds will have a wind chill as low as 35 below zero.
“Dangerously cold wind chills will pose a risk for frost bite and hypothermia for anyone outside for even very short periods of time,” NWS advised. “This is a life-threatening cold for those not in shelter.”
Those venturing outside are urged to use common sense and dress warmly.
