Special Weather Statement

...Very cold conditions are likely from New Year`s Eve through

Bitterly cold air will push south into the region this weekend and
last through Tuesday. Very cold temperatures combined with steady
north to northwest winds will result in dangerously cold wind
chill temperatures Saturday night through Monday night. Wind
chill temperatures from 0 to 15 below zero will be common, with
the coldest wind chill temperatures early New Year`s Day morning.
Wind chill temperatures during the day will generally be in the
single digits to just below zero.

Due to the extended cold snap, plan to reduce time spent outdoors
Sunday through Tuesday, including New Year`s Day. These conditions
will increase the likelihood of hypothermia and frost bite.

Adverse impacts to infrastructure, such as plumbing, are likely
if adequate steps are not taken to insulate exposed pipes. Check
on the elderly, and be sure to make arrangements for outdoor pets
during this time of very cold weather.
