A Wind Chill Advisory issued by the National Weather Service will go into effect Saturday morning.

Wind chill values well below zero will impact Missouri Saturday through Tuesday. Cold wind chills can lead to frostbite within 30 minutes to exposed skin, and prolonged times exposed to such winds could lead to hypothermia.

Mid-Missouri could also experience one of the coldest New Year's Eve and start to the new year in a decade. Wind chill values are expected to be between -5 to -25 degrees Sunday evening.
