Below-zero wind chills greet IN on New Year's holiday

New Year's Eve through 12 p.m. Monday, prompting a wind chill advisory for all counties in the northern half of the Buckeye state from the National Weather Service. And it's only going to get worse later in the day, with temperatures dropping below zero across most of the area while wind chills reach between -15 and -20 degrees.

As we head into New Year's Eve day we're tracking dry weather, but the bitterly cold wind chills will return.

Tonight's low is expected to be around -2 degrees, and wind chills ranging from 10 to 25 degrees below zero will make it unsafe for anyone to spend extended time outdoors on New Year's Eve without proper attire, according to the National Weather Service.

The Arctic air that continues to keep temperatures well below freezing will be with us through the weekend and into the beginning of 2018.

This evening, if you are planning on being outside, take proper precautions to avoid frost bite and hypothermia. Forecasters say the potential exists for multiple nights of subzero low temperatures and wind chills. Dress in layers and wear a hat, mittens and a scarf.
