In those conditions, frostbite can develop on exposed skin in under a half hour. It’s very important that you bundle up as much as possible Friday morning. Try to limit the time you spend outside until later in the day, if possible, when conditions improve a bit. Keep your pets in mind too!
Friday is our last day of arctic air in the 7-day forecast. We’ll enjoy some milder temperatures for the weekend and into next week.
