Extreme cold expected

An arctic cold front will create bitterly cold wind chill readings Monday and Tuesday. The National Weather Service in Burlington says wind chill readings of 20 below zero or colder are expected in parts of the state.

The combination of falling temperatures and brisk winds means sub-zero wind chill readings are expected by late afternoon Tuesday. Actual air temperatures will drop Monday night to as low as 15 below zero in Vermont. But forecasters say it could feel as cold as 30 degrees below zero outside with the wind.

Forecasters advise people who have to go outside to make sure their hoods cover the majority of their face and mouth. People also should use a scarf to ensure warm breathing and to protect their lungs.
