BOSTON (WHDH) — A windchill warning has been issued for parts of Massachusetts as residents brace for single-digit temperatures.
Much of the western and central parts of the state have been warned until noon Saturday. In these areas, wind gusts can reach up to 40 miles per hour and temperatures drop to 30 degrees below zero, according to the National Weather Service.
Snow accumulations of 6 to 12 inches are also expected.
The rest of the state is subject to a windchill advisory. Parts of the central and eastern part of the state can see 10 to 20 degrees below zero.
When the wind chills are that fierce, frostbite can hit any exposed skin in about 30 minutes.
A strong, but fast-moving system is on its way to Massachusetts and is expected to arrive Sunday night.
Areas northwest of Interstate 495 may see up to six inches of snow before transitioning to rain at 7 a.m. Monday.
Most locations start to dry out at 2pm
