Breezy conditions combined with air temperatures falling into the single digits will cause below zero wind chill readings in some areas through early Wednesday.

Wind speeds of 10 to 20 MPH, along with higher gusts, will cause wind chill readings to fall to near zero across most of Connecticut. The northwestern portion of the state could see wind chills as low as -15°F as actual air temperatures in that area fall to near zero.

A Wind Chill Advisory is in effect for northern Litchfield County through noon Wednesday.
If you are planning on being outside tonight or Wednesday morning, especially in that area, it is very important to dress in layers and keep all skin covered. Frostbite and hypothermia can set in in a matter of minutes if unexposed skin comes in contact for wind chills this cold.
