The weather is not just going to be uncomfortably cold but dangerous also in Door County. The National Weather Service has issued a wind chill advisory for almost all of Wisconsin including Door and Kewaunee County from 6 p.m. Thursday night until noon on Friday. The wind chills could drop to between 25 to 35 below zero. The NWS says that frostbite can occur on exposed skin in as little as 10 minutes when it’s that cold. Dan Kane is the Door County Emergency Communications Director and he says that the people of Door County take pride in how they can handle cold weather but people should be very careful being outside.
This “arctic blast” is being forecasted to last into the beginning of February. The forecast calls for single-digit to below-zero temperatures until February 2nd.
