New Year's Eve forecast: Below-zero temps, bitter wind chill

National Weather Service: Coldest air mass of the season to arrive this weekend; snow Thursday

-5 Tuesday morning would tie the record. Thursday will be cloudy and breezy with highs in the upper 20s and low 30s. 6 the high New Year's Day. Expect dangerously cold temperatures to linger for a few days.

Sub-zero temperatures and unsafe wind chill readings gripped north-central and north-eastern Montana at the beginning of 2018.

The record low for Tuesday morning is 12 below zero set in 1887 and we may tie that record as well. Even though the thermometer will read 20°, it'll feel more like it's in the single digits thanks to winds driving out of the north at 10 to 15 miles per hour. Mostly sunny skies won't help the temperatures much, with afternoon highs topping out in the low 20s.

Gunmen kill 12 in Cairo church
Eleven people were killed in all, including a policeman at the church, according to Interior Ministry and Coptic Church accounts. The attack claimed the lives of seven people, including one police conscript, and left four citizens wounded.

The cold wind chills will cause frostbite and hypothermia symptoms in as little as 30 minutes.

2018 starts like 2017 ended, with really cold temperatures and brisk winds. Afternoon temperatures are in the teens to near 20 degrees. Thermometers only rise into the mid-upper teens with a bone chilling wind chill.

Amid the cold conditions, Wasula said people should make an effort to "not stay out too long" but be prepared if getting out. It depends on how quickly the next burst of arctic air moves into our area.
