Coldest readings will likely occur in far west and far southern counties Sunday evening through noon Monday (grey-shaded area on the highlighted map). The cold wind chills will cause frostbite in as little as 30 minutes to exposed skin. Actual temperatures tonight will be near -10, but our wind chills will be around -15 to -30.

A Wind Chill Advisory is now in effect for the Valley for Monday starting at 12 a.m. and last until 11 a.m.

High temperatures today will reach the mid teens, but with a north wind at 5 to 15 miles per hour, wind chill values will range from 0 to -10 degrees throughout the day.
