Unsafe wind chills hit Minnesota

A high-wind advisory for much of the region was in effect today until 6 p.m.

On Sunday afternoon the National Weather Service issued a wind chill advisory to be in effect from 6 p.m. Monday through noon Wednesday as a blast of Arctic air will combine with westerly winds of 10 to 15 miles per hour to create unsafe wind chills.

Look for wind chills near or below zero early Wednesday, with highs only in the teens.

In Billings on Saturday, there's a 20 percent chance of snow before 11 a.m.

Wind chills between -5 degrees and -15 degrees Fahrenheit are expected starting tomorrow. The low will be around 2, with wind chill values as low as minus 20 and west wind 17 to 26 miles per hour. Wind Chill Warnings (grey-shaded areas on the map below) call for -45-degree wind chills across northern Minnesota and North Dakota into northeast Montana.

Temperatures are forecast to moderate some towards the end of the week before another arctic blast arrives just before the new year. Winds: W 15-30 miles per hour. Watch ABC17 News for the newest forecast and timing of snow chances through the week and check back here for updates.
