Weather service keeping 'extreme cold' statements
BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — The National Weather Service in the Dakotas and Minnesota will not be issuing wind chill warnings this winter, opting instead for the "extreme cold" statements that debuted last winter.
Wind chill is the measure of how cold it feels once the wind is factored in with the air temperature. The new warning emphasizes that dangerous cold does not necessarily depend on the wind, forecasters said.
