The weather may be downright dangerous this weekend.  Saturday night into Sunday, the forecast calls for 6-to-10 inches of snow with high winds creating blizzard conditions at times.  But meteorologist Chris Miller with the National Weather Service says the most dangerous conditions will come from the brutal cold.

“Windchills solidly 15-to-30 below Sunday night and there are parts of Illinois that could could even have windchills of 40-below or colder Monday into Tuesday” says Miller.

Miller says this is the coldest air mass in nearly 30 years.  Highs on Monday are only expected to reach 5-to-10 below zero.  A winter weather advisory has been issued Saturday evening through Sunday night.
