It's Really Cold

Holy Hoth, it's cold. As of 10:51 a.m., Midway was reporting a temperature of -4 (Fahrenheit, yo!) with a wind chill of -31, thus the need for a Wind Chill Warning until 4.p.m. These gusty winds and subzero air temps will keep wind chills between -20 and -40 most of the day. We're under a Winter Weather Advisory until 6 p.m. for blowing snow. A Wind Chill Advisory takes us into tonight and tomorrow morning with not much improvement in either temps or wind chills. In spite of the sun, it's a good Sunday to stay inside and wrap presents but if you absolutely have to leave the house, bundle up big time.
