The Coldest Wind Chills in Decades Thrash New England

0

Residents of New England are bracing for the coldest wind chills in decades as a deep freeze sets in across the region. Temperatures are expected to plummet to below zero and wind chills could reach as low as -30 Fahrenheit, making outdoor activities dangerous and potentially life-threatening.
The National Weather Service (NWS) has issued wind chill warnings for parts of Massachusetts, Connecticut, Rhode Island, and New Hampshire. The NWS is advising people to cover up exposed skin and to limit their time outside.
The coldest temperatures will be felt in the higher elevations, where wind chills could be as low as –30 Fahrenheit. In the lower elevations, wind chills could reach -20 Fahrenheit. Temperatures are expected to remain below freezing for several days, with no relief in sight until the weekend.
The extreme cold is the result of a polar vortex moving south from Canada. The arctic air mass is bringing dangerously cold temperatures and high winds to the region. The combination of the two is creating dangerously low wind chills that could cause frostbite in as little as 10 minutes of exposure.
The cold snap is expected to last through the weekend and may even continue into next week. As a result, schools and businesses have closed in some parts of the region.
In order to stay safe in the extreme cold, people should wear multiple layers of warm clothing, including a hat and gloves, and limit their time outside. People should also avoid going outside if they do not have to, as the temperatures can be life-threatening.
Those who must venture outside should be aware of the signs of frostbite, which include numbness, redness, and tingling in the fingers, toes, or face. If any of these symptoms occur, it is important to seek medical attention immediately.
The cold snap is being felt across the entire region, but the worst of it is concentrated in the higher elevations of New England. People in those areas should take extra precautions to stay safe and warm.
While the cold snap is expected to last through the weekend, temperatures should start to rise by next week. Until then, people in New England should bundle up and stay indoors as much as possible to stay safe and warm. Being outside for any extended time could be dangerous and even deadly.
