All,

We talk a lot about ice safety i.e whether itís safe to go on the ice. Rarely have I seen discussion on other hazards associated with being outdoors. You should all be aware of the wind chill advisory in force for the next 38hrs....

...WIND CHILL ADVISORY IN EFFECT FROM 10 PM THIS EVENING TO NOON EST TUESDAY...

* WHAT...Very cold wind chills expected. The cold wind chills will cause frostbite in as little as 30 minutes to exposed skin. The wind chill will range from 10 below zero to 20 below zero, except Monday night into Tuesday morning when the wind chill will be colder than 20 below zero.

* WHERE...Portions of East Central Indiana and Central and West Central Ohio.

* WHEN...From 10 PM this evening to noon EST Tuesday.

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.

Check your local weather for more details...

Since hyperthermia will occur after 15mins in the water at this time of year, the wind chill hazard, described above, is very significant.

Stay safe!

Andy
