Frigid temperatures on the way

Posted:

Frigid temperatures are heading our way.

We'll likely see single-digit highs during the later part of the weekend.

At night, temps will hover well below freezing and with wind chills it could dip down to negative 20! 

Health officials say it's important to be careful. 

"You want to stay hydrated and cover up, dress in layers, make sure that your footwear is very good because it's very easy for the extremities to get cold so you want insulated mittens or gloves," said Certified Medical Assistant, Doniel Noble.

Health officials at Aspirus say they see an increase in patients when the weather gets bad.
