LIVINGSTON COUNTY – For the second consecutive week, a Wind Chill Warning has been issued for Livingston County and the Genesee Valley, as windchill values are predicted to be -30 degrees or lower until 10 a.m. Friday.
News partner 13WHAM has announced a Wind Chill Warning for all of Western New York beginning at midnight Wednesday and continuing through 10a.m. Friday.
Wind speeds will fluctuate between 10 and 25mph SW/W. It is recommended that people take proper precautions to protect themselves against the severe cold by covering exposed skin with layers to avoid prolonged exposure to cold, frostbite, or hypothermia.
There is also a strong likelihood of lake effect snow affecting the region sporadically on Thursday which could make driving especially hazardous when combined with the frigid temperatures.
There will be a mild reprieve from the recent cold snap Wednesday as temperatures may warm up to a high of 19 degrees. However, it will become mostly cloudy as the day progresses with snow showers developing in the afternoon.
