Cold Weather Continues
The VERY cold weather continues.
Bone-chilling cold gripping much of the U.S. is breaking century-old records and is being blamed on several deaths. The National Weather Service issued wind chill advisories and freeze warnings Tuesday covering a vast area from South Texas to Canada and from Montana through New England. Authorities opened warming shelters in the South as temperatures dipped notably close to zero in Alabama and Georgia. In Aberdeen, South Dakota, the mercury dropped to a record-breaking minus 32. Sub-zero temperatures and dangerous wind chill readings are gripping north-central and north-eastern Montana at the beginning of 2018. Sidney reported a temperature of minus 37 at 8 a.m. Monday. The wind chill reading in the central Montana town of Jordan dipped as low as minus 58, while Wolf Point's was as low as minus 56 on Monday morning.
When you travel, use your head! Coat, gloves, shovel, water and food. Most important, if you don't have to travel. DON'T. Good news is that it will warm up, but we will now have to deal with wind.
