At 3:18 p.m. Thursday, the National Weather Service issued a Wind Chill Advisory for north-central and northeastern Connecticut. Wind chills may fall to as low as -18°F tonight. Additional advisories may be issued later Thursday.

With actual air temperatures forecast to fall to near zero tonight across inland Connecticut, including the city of Hartford, a light breeze will make it feel even colder. Winds of 10-15 MPH with gusts as high as 35 MPH will produce wind chill readings between zero and -18°F through 10 a.m. Friday.

If you must go outside during this time, you are advised to dress warmly and in layers, making sure that no skin is left exposed to the elements. Any prolonged exposure of unprotected skin to conditions this cold could result in frostbite or hypothermia.
