The National Weather Service in Bismarck has issued a wind chill warning effective through noon Monday.

Temperatures will not rise above minus 8 degrees through Monday with wind chills reaching as low as minus 50 degrees in some areas. Less than than an inch of snow is expected to accumulate today.

Most locations today will be within a couple degrees of setting new record low daily maximum temperatures. This means high temperatures could rank as the coldest on record for Dec 30. An example is Jamestown, where a forecast high of minus 15 degrees, is colder than the record of minus 14 degrees set back in 1968.
