Wind Chill Warning in effect Sunday for mid-Missouri counties
NEW BLOOMFIELD —
A Wind Chill Warning issued by the National Weather Service will begin Sunday evening and last until Monday afternoon.
Wind chill values will be as cold as minus 25 degrees, well below zero. This combination of low temperatures and strong winds will create dangerously low wind chill values New Year's Eve and New Year's Day.
This could result in frostbite and hypothermia or death if precautions are not taken. If venturing outdoors, be certain to dress properly covering all exposed skin with several layers of fitting clothing.
After the duration of the warning, many mid-Missouri counties will be under a Wind Chill Advisory until Tuesday afternoon.
A Wind Chill Warning for Audrain, Boone, Callaway, Moniteau, Monroe and Montgomery counties begins 9 p.m. Sunday and lasts until 12 p.m. Monday. This includes Columbia, Fulton, Mexico and Pittsfield cities.
A Wind Chill Warning for Chariton, Cooper, Pettis, Randolph, Morgan, Benton and Saline counties begins 6 p.m. Sunday and lasts until 6 p.m. Tuesday. This includes cities such as Brunswick, Boonville, Marshall, Moberly, Versailles, Warsaw and Sedalia.
