The National Weather Service in Grand Forks has issued a wind chill warning, in effect from 3 a.m. to noon Tuesday. A wind chill advisory is currently in effect until 3 a.m. Tuesday.

The NWS says wind chills will drop to 25 to 35 below during the late afternoon and early evening hours Monday. Wind chills will be dropping to 35 to 45 below by early Tuesday morning. The dangerous cold will continue through noon on Tuesday.

A wind chill warning means the combination of very cold air and winds will create dangerously low wind chill values. This will result in frost bite and can lead to hypothermia or death if precautions aren't taken.
