The National Weather Service in Peachtree City has issued a wind chill advisory in effect until 1 p.m. for portions of west central Georgia. Dangerously cold wind chills are expected with wind chill readings as low as 11 below 0 F. Frost bite and hypothermia are possible if precautions are not taken. Winds will be 10 to 15 mph with gusts up to 25 mph. Temperatures will range from 9 to 17 F. A wind chill advisory means that very cold air and strong winds will combine to generate low wind chills. This will result in frost bite or hypothermia if precautions are not taken. If you must venture outdoors...make sure you wear a hat and gloves.

The service’s hazardous weather outlook for portions of north and central Georgia is for today and tonight, gusty winds and bitterly cold temperatures will combine to produce dangerously cold wind chills this morning. Wind chills below 0 for most of north and central Georgia are expected and wind chills may drop as low as 20 to 30 degrees below 0 in the higher elevations.

The forecast is for some potential for patchy freezing drizzle across portions of central Georgia overnight Wednesday.
