State public health officials are warning Wisconsinites about some dangerous weather conditions on the way.
Frigid wind chills are in the forecast for much of the state the remainder of this week. Overnight low temperatures will dip well below zero, with wind chill readings between 10 to 30 below zero.
The Wisconsin Department of Health Services reports 33 “cold-related” fatalities occurred in the state last winter, between December and February. DHS officials are urging residents to limit their time outdoors, watch for signs of frostbite or hypothermia, and make sure there’s a working carbon monoxide detector in their home.
