Bitter Cold and Wind to Bring Dangerous Below Zero Wind Chills Tonight

Low pressure will rapidly intensify in the Guld of Maine tonight causing the wind to increase from the west-northwest in gusts from 35-40 mph driving a bitterly cold air mass into the region.  Temperatures will plunge to near or below zero with wind chills later tonight through Saturday morning dropping to a range of -15 to -25 at times.  Dress appropriately for the cold wearing layers, a hat and gloves and covering exposed skin surfaces to reduce the chance for frost bite which can set develop in as little at 15-20 minutes on exposed skin surfaces. Pets should be brought in - if you're cold they are too.
