Temperatures could reach “dangerously cold” levels this weekend, according to the National Weather Service.
The weather service has issued both a wind chill advisory and a warning in counties across the state, including Boone County.
A wind chill advisory will be in effect until 9 p.m. Sunday.
The advisory will increase to a wind chill warning from 9 p.m. Sunday to noon Monday and will return to an advisory from noon Monday until noon Tuesday.
A wind chill warning is more severe than an advisory. The Weather Service expects temperatures could drop to 25-30 degrees below zero at times from Sunday night through Monday afternoon, when the warning will be in effect.
Cold wind chills can cause frostbite within 30 minutes, according to the weather service.
Precautions include layering clothes and ensuring that exposed skin is covered.
