The National Weather Service has issued wind chill warning for the area, remaining in effect until noon on Wednesday.

The NWS says bitterly cold arctic air has settled over the northern plains. Frigid temperatures are combining with winds of up to 15 mph, which creates areas of dangerous wind chills from -35 to around -50 across west and central North Dakota.

A wind chill warning means the combination of very cold air and winds will create dangerously low wind chill values, which can result in frostbite, hypothermia or death if precautions are not taken. Cover any exposed skin and limit your time outdoors.
