DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) – A Wind Chill Advisory is in effect until noon Friday.

Wind chill values may dip from 15 to as much as 24 below zero.  This means frostbite can occur in as little as 15 to 20 minutes.

“Even though the Wind Chill Warning expired and we’re under an advisory everyone should still be taking this cold snap seriously.  If you are outside make sure you’re dressing in layers and covering all of your skin,” said Storm Team 2 Meteorologist Tara Hastings.

Storm Team 2 says we broke a record Thursday.  The record coldest maximum for this day is 12 degrees set in 1936 and Thursday’s high was 8 degrees. Another record is jeopardy tonight.  The forecast low for Friday morning is -7 and the record low is -6 set back in 1904.

While the steady snow came to an end Wednesday, Storm Team 2 is already looking ahead to the next system expected to affect us Friday night through the weekend.  A slow warm up will start us off with a chance at accumulating snow, then turn to a wintry mix.
