Arctic Blast: Below-Zero Wind Chills Heading to Anne Arundel
For the second time in January, an arctic blast is descending upon the region, bringing with it below-zero wind chill values and prompting  the National Weather Service to issue a wind child advisory

The advisory will be in effect from 6 p.m. Tuesday until noon Wednesday. NWS is predicting wind chills values of 5 below zero to 15 below zero locally Tuesday night and into Wednesday morning. Northeast winds will be blowing at 10 mph to 15 mph by Tuesday afternoon, with gusts up to 30 mph. Winds will become northwest overnight and increase to 15 mph to 25 mph, with gusts up to 40 mph.

A wind chill advisory is issued when low temperatures and high winds combine to create dangerous low wind chills. Low wind chills could lead to frostbite or hypothermia. Anyone going outdoors should wear a hat and gloves.

This is on top of  t he winter storm warning that went into effect at 7 a.m. Tuesday . The storm is expected to dump between 4 and 8 inches of snow on Edgewater, with higher amounts possible locally.
