Wind Chill Advisory for parts of the area. What does it mean for you?

By  | 

BRIDGEPORT, W. Va. (WDTV) - Temperatures will drop into the single digits in the mountains tonight and lower double digits in the lower elevations. Combine this with a little bit of wind and wind chills can feel as low as 20 below zero.

This is enough to cause frostbite and hypothermia if precautions are not taken. Try not to leave exposed skin if you have to be outside for long periods of time. Get inside to warm up if possible.

While this advisory is only in effect for parts of the mountains, it won't feel too much warmer elsewhere. The good news is that warmer temperatures, both in the lowlands and mountains, both at night and during the day, are coming our way.
