Dangerous wind chills for New Year’s Day

Wind Chill Advisories and Wind Chill Warnings through this morning.

CHICOPEE, Mass. (WWLP) – We continue to track bitterly cold wind chills for the start of 2018.

Wind chill warnings have ended, but new wind chill advisories have been issued through Tuesday morning for parts of western Massachusetts.

Wind Chill Advisory: Western Hampden, western Hampshire & all of Franklin Counties until 11am Tuesday. Wind chills -10 to -20 are possible.

Low temperatures New Year’s Day morning were well below zero and  high temperatures on New Year’s Day will only be in the low teens, but the wind chills will make it feel like it’s well below zero.

If outdoors, dress in multiple layers and cover exposed skin. The cold wind chills will cause frostbite in as little as 30 minutes to exposed skin.
