New Year to start off with risky wind chills

New Year to start off with risky wind chills

Lows tonight will fall into the upper single digits and teens.

Northwest Missouri and northeast Kansas are starting off the new year with bone-chilling temperatures Monday morning.

Well, 2018 is off to a COLD start! This mix has led us to the coldest temperatures in four years and don't expect change anytime soon. Otherwise, the main story line tonight will be the cold temperatures and low wind chills.

A new record low was set in St. Joseph for January 1 with -14 degrees, breaking the old record of -11 degrees set back in 1974. There's the potential for absolutely nothing to some snow showers, or even a period of light snow east. Temperatures drop down into the low teens tonight but winds at 10-15 miles per hour will make it feel like the negatives. Mostly sunny skies won't help the temperatures much, with afternoon highs topping out in the low 20s. Those colder readings will work down into south Alabama, where wind chills on Monday night could range between 5-10 degrees. Feel like temps once again dip into the negatives Monday night as actual lows plunge into the single digits.

We are in the midst of a long stretch of cold weather.

An arctic air mass from Canada and North America is to blame, he said.
