Dangerous cold once again blanketing much of North Dakota; wind chill advisories in effect


BISMARCK, North Dakota — Bitter cold that is blanketing North Dakota is forecast to get worse.

The National Weather Service posted a wind chill advisory early Tuesday for much of the state, with wind chills dropping into the minus 20s.

Forecasters issued another wind chill advisory for late Tuesday into early Wednesday for much of the state, with the combination of cold and wind expected to make it feel as cold as 40 below zero in some areas. Officials say frostbite can occur in less than half an hour under such conditions.

High temperatures Wednesday in eastern North Dakota are not expected to rise above zero. Thursday will bring a chance of snow in western and central North Dakota.
