... Wind Chill Advisory in effect from 6 PM Saturday to 9 am EST
Sunday...

The National Weather Service in Mount Holly has issued a Wind
Chill Advisory... which is in effect from 6 PM Saturday to 9 am
EST Sunday.

* Locations... much of eastern Pennsylvania and New Jersey, a large
portion of Maryland's Eastern Shore as well as the north and
central portion of Delaware.

* Wind chill... 10 to 18 below zero... with northwest winds 10 to 20
mph gusting to nearly 40 mph.

* Timing... wind chills will begin to drop to dangerous levels late
Saturday with the coldest values between midnight and sunrise
Sunday. Wind chills will slowly ease by late Sunday morning.

* Impacts... wind chill values potentially reaching dangerous
levels. The very low wind chills have the potential to result
in hypothermia if care is not taken to stay warm and sheltered.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A Wind Chill Advisory means that very cold air and strong winds
will combine to generate low wind chills. This will result in
frost bite and lead to hypothermia if precautions are not taken.
If you must venture outdoors... make sure you wear a hat and
gloves.

southern New Jersey, all of the immediate New Jersey coast, a
large portion of Maryland's Eastern Shore adjacent Chesapeake
Bay, as well as Delaware, especially from Wilmington southeast
to Lewes.

* Winds... northwest 20 to 30 mph with scattered gusts 45 to 55 mph.

* Timing... winds will pick up suddenly near dawn Saturday and may
immediately gust past 45 mph. There appears to a greater chance
of northwest wind gusts between 45 and 55 mph Saturday afternoon.
If gusts near 50 mph occur as expected Saturday, this advisory
may eventually have to be extended into Saturday evening.

* Impacts... a possibility of a few broken tree limbs and associated
power outages. Driving will be difficult at times, especially
for high profile vehicles.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A Wind Advisory means that very windy conditions are expected.
Winds this strong can make driving difficult... especially for
high profile vehicles. Use extra caution. Light-weight outdoor
objects such as patio furniture and garbage cans should be
