The National Weather Service has issued a Wind Chill WATCH in effect from 9pm Friday to 10am Saturday for Northern Grafton, Northern Carroll, and Coos Counties.

Wind Chill values for the North Country late Friday Night into first thing Saturday Morning could be as low as -30 to -40. Air temperatures should be anywhere between 1 and -16. Winds could gust up to 35mph.

When skin is exposed to wind chill values colder than -30, it can freeze in minutes. Frostbite and hypothermia could set in quickly if not dressed accordingly when exposed to these dangerously low wind chill values. Where several warm loose fitting layers of clothing, a hat, scarf, mittens over gloves. Don't forget to monitor the pets, elderly, and young as well.

For Central and Southern reaches of the Granite State, wind chill values will be more on the range of -10 to -20. This is still cold enough for some issues and a Wind Chill Advisory may be issued here later.
