The strong winds may make for difficult driving, especially for high-profile or light weight vehicles.

The Wind Chill Advisory is posted from 9 pm Saturday until 11 am Sunday. Wind chill values from 25 below to 30 below zero will develop Saturday night and linger into Sunday morning. This will result in frostbite and lead to hypothermia if precautions are not taken.
