...VERY COLD WIND CHILLS THIS MORNING...

TEMPERATURES HAVE DROPPED BELOW ZERO THIS MORNING FOR MANY AREAS
ALONG AND WEST OF THE LARAMIE RANGE. WINDS ON AVERAGE ARE
RANGING 5 TO 10 MPH OR LESS...BUT A FEW SPOTS ARE SEEING SPEEDS UP
TO 15 MPH. AS A RESULT...WIND CHILLS HAVE DROPPED INTO THE MINUS
SINGLE DIGITS TO MINUS TEENS...WITH A COUPLE SPOTS DIPPING INTO
THE MINUS 20S. THE COLDEST READINGS ARE IN THE NORTH SNOWY RANGE
FOOTHILLS BETWEEN LARAMIE AND RAWLINS...AND IN THE SOUTHERN
LARAMIE RANGE BETWEEN CHEYENNE AND LARAMIE. WINDS WILL CONTINUE
TO SLACKEN THROUGH THE MORNING WHICH WILL ALLOW WIND CHILLS TO
INCREASE.

WEAR EXTRA LAYERS AS YOU VENTURE OUTSIDE THIS MORNING AND MINIMIZE
THE AMOUNT OF TIME YOUR PETS SPEND OUTSIDE. FROSTBITE AND
HYPOTHERMIA CAN OCCUR IN A VERY SHORT PERIOD OF TIME IF PROPER
PRECAUTIONS ARE NOT TAKEN.
