Bitter Cold and Wind to Bring Dangerous Below Zero Wind Chills Into Sat. Morning

Strong low presure in the Gulf of Maine through Saturday will continue to cause wind gusts locally from 30-35 mph through Saturday afternoon.  The wind in combination with the bitterly cold air in place will drop wind chills to -15 to -25 degrees at times through Saturday morning easing slightly to between -10 and -15 Saturday afternoon as temperatures climb from morning lows near zero into the low to mid teens. Dress appropriately for the cold wearing layers, a hat and mittens and covering exposed skin surfaces to reduce the chance for frost bite which can develop in as little at 15-20 minutes on exposed skin surfaces.
