Wind chills down to around -50 possible in Wyoming

DENVER (AP) — Wind chills down to around 50 below zero are still possible in Colorado, Wyoming and Nebraska through Wednesday morning before bitter cold arctic air moves out.

Colorado’s Eastern Plains could see wind chills readings from 25 below to 40 below zero.

Even though winds are not very strong in southern Wyoming, the National Weather Service says a few locations in the Laramie Valley could feel as cold as 50 below zero. Elsewhere in southern Wyoming and the Nebraska Panhandle it could feel like 20 to 30 below zero.

Cheyenne, Wyoming set a new record daily low temperature on Tuesday when the mercury dropped to negative 22. The previous record for Dec. 30 was minus 21 set in 1923.

Temperatures are expected to rise into the 20s in the afternoon.
