You think it was cold here this morning when Oklahoma City was near 10 degrees. Try waking up to this:
44 below zero in International Falls, Minnesota! Because of this cold, The National Weather Service is trying something new, and that is issuing a warning called an “EXTREME COLD WARNING”. So, why the change? Well, if you look at the list of advisories that the NWS uses, there is a WIND CHILL ADVISORY AND A WIND CHILL WARNING. But, in this case, the winds are calm and so the wind chill is not the issue at hand, it’s the extreme cold. The government wants to know what you think. Would the use of an EXTREME COLD WARNING make you become more weather-aware? If you wanna voice your opinion… go to this link: http://www.weather.gov/survey/nws-survey.php?code=ecw.
PS- Good grief that’s cold btw…
