Wind chills as cold as 50 degrees below zero expected

Post by DallasDimeBags » Fri Feb 05, 2021 8:13 pm

this weekend in parts of Midwest

Good lord that's f***ing cold.


"On Friday, wind chill advisories were hoisted for parts of the Northern Plains and the Upper Midwest where values were forecast to dip to 30 to 50 degrees below zero during the upcoming weekend.

This is a life-threatening cold and frostbite can set in within 10 minutes.

The air mass responsible for dipping temperatures 20-30 degrees below average is coming from thousands of miles away over Siberia, Russia. This air mass origin is why meteorologists so often term arctic outbreaks like this as the "Siberian Express."

While this arctic outbreak won’t be record-shattering with just a few spotty record lows possible, what worries meteorologists most is the duration. Some locations, like Bismarck, North Dakota, could see five days or more with wind chills 15 degrees below zero or colder.

On Saturday morning, Minneapolis will wake up to air temperatures below zero, with a bone chilling wind chill of 20 degrees below zero. Chicago will manage low temperatures just above zero, but their wind chill will still make it feel like 12 degrees below zero."

Think of how stupid the average person is, and realize half of the others are stupider than that
