A wind advisory has been issued for the northern part of the state from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Tuesday.
"During that time period, northwesterly winds could gust to between 40 and 50 mph. Temperatures will only reach the mid to upper 20s, but wind chill readings will be in the single digits and teens all day," DePrest said.
The wind chill could dip below zero on Tuesday, especially during the morning hours.
There is a threat for a potentially major winter storm for the end of the week.
While there is some model variability, DePrest said, "we can say here is the potential for heavy snow (6” or more) and strong gusty winds this weekend and it could be a long duration storm."
The first flakes could fly on Friday night, and the storm my not end until Saturday morning.
