More Extreme Cold, Snow Forecast for Syracuse
It’s beginning to sound like a broken record. More cold weather and snow is being forecast for Syracuse and Central New York, which means the need to dress appropriately when heading outside. A wind chill advisory is now posted for Thursday and Friday. The latest information indicates that along with a few inches of new snow, bitter cold could bring wind chill values back into the negative numbers, possibly as low as -25 Thursday, overnight to Friday morning.
Again, Syracuse University Health Services reminds people to keep exposed skin covered, especially extremities, including fingers, ears, nose and toes. Frostbite and frostnip can begin to form in as little as 20 minutes when temperatures dip this low.
Other cold weather tips:
•Wear layers of loose-fitting, lightweight, warm clothing and a hat.
•Cover your mouth to protect your lungs from extreme cold.
•Mittens, snug at the wrist, are better than gloves.
•Try to stay dry and out of the wind.
