(Des Moines) Southwest and central Iowa will be in the deep freeze to start the week. The National Weather Service has issued a Wind Chill Advisory from midnight tonight to 11:00 a.m. Monday. Those area counties included in the advisory area are; Audubon, Guthrie, Dallas, Cass, Adair, Madison, Adams, Union, Taylor and Ringgold.
Forecasters say north to northwest winds will combine to produce dangerous wind chills tonight into Monday morning. Temperatures will drop to near 10-below by Monday morning. Wind chill values will range from near 20-to-25 below by morning and slowly moderate by late Monday morning.
A Wind Chill Advisory means that very cold temperatures 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.
