* Impacts... snow and snow packed roads will make travel
hazardous... especially across the high elevations near the

could result in a few downed trees. Wind chill values of less
than 5 degrees below zero will make it dangerous to be outside
across the high elevations Tuesday night.

A Wind Chill Advisory means that very cold air and strong winds
