ST. CLOUD, Minn. (KNSI) It looks like 2012 will end on a cold note.
The National Weather Service has issued a Wind Chill Advisory from 10 o'clock tonight until 9 am New Year's Day for parts of west central, central and southern Minnesota--including the St. Cloud area.
Wind chill values are expected to drop to -25 to -30 overnight and into New Year's Day west of a St. Cloud to Glencoe line, and south of a New Prague to Red Wing line.
These dangerously cold wind child chills will be due to the combination of west-northwest winds of 5 to 10 miles an hour, and actual air temperatures of -10 to -20.
The Wind Chill Advisory means frostbite and hypothermia can occur quickly if precautions are not taken.
St. Cloud's record low for December 31st is -34 in 1976.
