RALEIGH, N.C. (WNCN) – A wind chill advisory and wind advisory have been issued for much of the Triangle before an arctic blast arrives before Christmas.
The wind chill advisory goes into effect from 7 p.m. Friday through Saturday morning at 9 a.m. And the wind advisory begins Friday at 4 a.m. until 6p.m. on Friday.
The arctic air will get here Friday, and sustained winds could reach 15 to 25 miles per hour and gusts could reach up to 50 miles per hour.
You’ll want to make sure to secure any outdoor objects like trash cans, small tables or chairs, and other items. And make sure to be aware and use caution while driving.
High temperatures over the holiday weekend will only reach the low 30s, but the wind chill on Saturday morning will make it feel like temperatures are in the single digits, the CBS 17 Weather Team said. Friday night’s lows will reach 12 degrees.
Make sure to take your cold weather precautions if you are heading outside, as officials said frostbite is possible is precautions are not taken.
