Wind Chill Advisory

Good afternoon,

Please see the following information on the wind chill advisory. As always, please contact us if you have any questions or concerns.

A Wind Chill Advisory is in effect now until 9:00 am on Thursday for Coos County and from midnight to 9:00 am on Thursday for the rest of the state.

From 6:00 pm tonight through 6:00 pm on Thursday, temperatures will fall to below zero in all areas except perhaps the beaches of coastal Rockingham County. A few locations in the far north will be 15 below zero or colder

Very cold wind chills are expected. The cold wind chills will cause frostbite to exposed skin in as little as 30 minutes. Expect wind chills to range from 15 below zero to 25 below zero, with perhaps lower wind chills tonight.

Precautionary/preparedness Actions: A Wind Chill Advisory means that cold air and the wind will combine to create low wind chills. Frost bite and hypothermia can occur if precautions are not taken. Make sure you wear a hat and gloves.

Thank you!
