Clinton County is in the warning area with forecasted wind chills to range between 10 below zero to 30 below zero. The coldest values are expected between 10:00 p.m. tonight and 10:00 a.m. tomorrow.
A friendly reminder! In addition to taking good care of yourselves and your families, please be sure to bring pets inside and check on elderly neighbors and those with very young babies to ensure they are OK as well.
We want everyone to remain warm and safe in these extreme temperatures as we move forward into the promise of a new year.
