...WIND CHILL WARNING IN EFFECT UNTIL 12 PM CST WEDNESDAY...

THE NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE IN CHANHASSEN HAS ISSUED A WIND CHILL WARNING...WHICH IS IN EFFECT UNTIL 12 PM CST WEDNESDAY.

BRISK NORTHWEST WINDS AND BITTERLY COLD AIR CONTINUE TO FLOOD INTO THE REGION. WIND CHILLS OF 40 BELOW TO 45 BELOW CAN BE EXPECTED.

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.


I thought you would enjoy the wind chill warning that I found on the weather channel for us tonight. It's never a good thing when they mention death. Currently it is -16 outside, but with the wind chill, it feels like -36. According to this warning, we still have 10 degrees to go until we reach the low! Enough said. Can someone remind us why we left NAPLES, FLORIDA for THIS???????
