    • Bitterly cold arctic air combined with strong westerly winds have resulted in wind chill values near minus 30 this afternoon.
    • Tonight even colder wind chill values near minus 35 are expected.
    • Conditions should improve Friday as milder air moves into the region.
    • Risks are greater for young children, older adults, people with chronic illnesses, people working or exercising outdoors, and those without proper shelter.
