Wind chill values fall to near zero degrees Saturday morning

HUNTSVILLE, Ala. – Due to the potential of dangerously cold wind chill values Saturday and Sunday mornings, the National Weather Service in Huntsville has posted a wind chill advisory for the Tennessee Valley.

The Advisory will be in effect Saturday morning until 11:00 AM for all of the Valley. Then a wind chill advisory will go into effect again Saturday evening at 8:00 PM through Sunday morning at 9:00 AM for DeKalb, Jackson, and Marshall Counties in Alabama, plus Franklin and Moore Counties in Tennessee.

Since January 2007, there have only been 13 wind chill advisories issued for our part of north Alabama.

Guidance suggests the “feels like” temperature may drop to near zero degrees across northwest Alabama and southern Tennessee around sunrise Saturday morning. Swipe through the gallery above to see how cold it will feel where you live.

The “feels like” temperature will remain well below freezing all day – only peaking near 20 degrees Saturday afternoon.

Sunday morning won’t be as brutally cold, but wind chill values will still  barely make it into the teens. Temperatures Sunday afternoon should finally get to near or just above freezing.

Milder weather returns next week; highs will be near 60 degrees by Wednesday, January 11.
