A WIND CHILL ADVISORY REMAINS IN EFFECT UNTIL 10 AM CST FRIDAY.

* WIND CHILL VALUES...WIND CHILLS WILL DROP TO BETWEEN 15 AND 25
  BELOW ZERO.

* IMPACTS...FROST BITE WILL OCCUR IN A MATTER OF MINUTES ON
  EXPOSED SKIN. EXTENDED EXPOSURE WITHOUT PROPER CLOTHING WILL
  INCREASE THE RISK OF HYPOTHERMIA.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

A WIND CHILL ADVISORY MEANS THAT VERY COLD AIR AND STRONG WINDS
WILL COMBINE TO GENERATE LOW WIND CHILLS. THIS WILL RESULT IN
FROST BITE AND LEAD TO HYPOTHERMIA IF PRECAUTIONS ARE NOT TAKEN.
IF YOU MUST VENTURE OUTDOORS...MAKE SURE YOU WEAR A HAT AND
GLOVES...AND MINIMIZE AS MUCH EXPOSED SKIN AS POSSIBLE.
