Wind chill warning canceled, advisory in effect

The wind chill warning that was in effect for McHenry County until Wednesday morning has been downgraded to a wind chill advisory by the National Weather Service.

A wind chill advisory is now in effect until 9 a.m. Wednesday. Wind chill values are expected to reach 15 to 20 below zero Tuesday afternoon, and 20 to 30 below zero Tuesday night and Wednesday morning.

The weather service still cautions that if you must venture outdoors, wear a hat and gloves, as frostbite and hypothermia can still occur if precautions are not taken.
