Frostbite Weather is Here

Bitterly cold weather is moving into the Brainerd Lakes through the end of the work week.  The National Weather Service has issued a Wind Chill advisory through 9 a.m. Saturday with wind chills between 20 and 35 below.

KLKS Meteorologist Tony Schumacher says frostbite can occur quickly.  He says it would take only a couple of minutes for exposed flesh to freeze.  And, he says hypothermia can affect those who are out in the elements for prolonged periods of time without bundling up properly.

Schumacher expects a short cold snap.  He says temperatures could top out in the 20's next week.
