KOSCIUSKO COUNTY — A Wind chill advisory is in effect from now until noon on Monday, Dec. 19. Counties under the advisory include Kosciusko, Lagrange, Steuben, Noble and Fulton.
The National Weather Service anticipates temperatures from 10 to 20 degrees below zero. Bitterly cold wind chill values are expected that can cause frostbite to exposed skin in as little as 30 minutes. People who venture outdoors should dress in layers and cover all exposed skin to avoid frostbite.
A wind chill advisory means that very cold air and strong winds will combine to generate low wind chills. This will result in frostbite and lead to hypothermia if precautions are not taken. If you must venture outdoors, make sure you wear a hat and gloves.
