Wind chills near minus 30 are expected this morning. After moderating during the day today, wind chills near minus 30 may return again tonight into Saturday morning for some areas.

Risks are greater for young children, older adults, people with chronic illnesses, people working or exercising outdoors, and those without proper shelter.

Dress warmly. Dress in layers that you can remove if you get too warm. The outer layer should be wind resistant.
