Wind chill advisory issued through Saturday morning

Environment Canada has issued a cold weather alert for the city of Hamilton

Detroit and the area will once again struggle to get above single digits. Wind chills in counties immediately adjacent to Lake Michigan will still be very cold - just below Advisory criteria in the -10 to -20-degree range during that same time frame. In these conditions, frostbite is possible in as little as 15 to 30 minutes.

This is when we will experience some of the coldest wind chills.

Four record temperatures could fall over the weekend. We will also be dealing with blowing snow. Watch for slick spots on roads.

Strong northwest winds will take over Thursday night and Friday and much colder air will return to Southern New England. The Winter Storm warning for additional heavy snows farther east and north in IN into southwest Lower Michigan (pink-shaded counties on the highlighted map) continues into Saturday. The alert is released when wind chills are expected to be 10 to 20 degrees below zero. Winds will remain gusty overnight, creating downright brutal wind chills - between 0 and 5 degrees. Skies gradually clear on Tuesday and it is seasonable in the mid-40s.

The Wind Chill Watch extends into Saturday afternoon when wind chills will still be far below zero. The wind could gust at more than 30 miles per hour. Clouds increase throughout the day on Sunday and temperatures reach into the low 20s.
