WEATHER ALERT: Wind Chill Could Hit -35 Sunday

The AP is reporting that frigid temperatures will combine with winds to make for some dangerously low wind chills in Nebraska tonight and all of Sunday.

The National Weather service says temperatures dip into the single digits Saturday and will hover around zero for much of Sunday.

Winds of 10 to 20 mph will produce wind chills of between 5-below zero to as low as 30-below in our region of Nebraska overnight. In northern Iowa, where a wind chill warning has been issued, residents could see wind chills as low as 35-below.  In the Dorchester area, expect actual temperatures to hit -5 degrees or lower.

Weather officials warn that wind chills that low can lead to frostbite within minutes for any exposed skin.  Residents are asked to stay in heated areas and bundle up if they must head outside.
