WEATHER ALERT: Expect extreme cold starting Monday

If you thought our -7 this morning was cold...wait until you feel Monday's temperatures.  

After a winter storm hits this weekend with a fresh 6" of snow, a deep arctic blast will move in behind it. This will drop temperatures from Sunday in the low 20s to highs on Monday BELOW zero.  

Right now we have Monday at -8 for the high and Tuesday at 0. With the strong winds, wind chills will be -30 to -40, not to mention the potential for blowing and drifting snow.  

Plan ahead for that cold. Pack extra clothes or blankets in your car for travel. DO NOT leave pets outside. 

Cold air like this is extremely dangerous and it is likely we will have adjustments to events and schedules for the early part of the week.
