Cheyenne NWS: Beware of Frostbite, Brutal Cold This Week
The Cheyenne Office of the National Weather Service is warning southeast Wyoming and Nebraska Panhandle residents to be ready for brutally cold weather this week that could drop to as low as -12 degrees in some areas.
The weather service is warning people to dress warmly, keep pets indoors, and take precautions against frostbite.
The agency posted this statement on its website:
''Here’s an extended outlook for the high/low temperatures across the region. We cover a large area so be sure to know if your city is west or east of I-25. Cold temperatures are here to stay so be sure to wear multiple layers and keep your furry friends indoors. Some cities will experience low wind chill values that could lead to frostbite!"
