It is going to be a freezing cold New Year's Eve in West Michigan tonight.
The wind chills will range from -10 to -20 across West Michigan, and the actual air temperatures will be from 0 to -5.
According to the Grand Rapids weather service, the cold air temperatures combined with the wind chill could cause frostbite to exposed skin in as little as 30 minutes.
In Allegan, Muskegon, Mason, Ottawa, Oceana and Van Buren Counties, there will also be more snow. There is an expected 1-3 inches of additional accumulation.
It's not just West Michigan that will be dealing with these freezing temperatures on New Year's Eve. For people in Times Square in New York City, partygoers may experience the second coldest ball-drop on record.
So, if you are heading out this New Year's Eve, make sure to bundle up!
Total ice cover on the #GreatLakes is 15% (per @NOAA_GLERL) clearly visible on #LakeErie, #GreenBay, #SaginawBay and several shorelines in this #VIIRS image. As ice coverage increases, #lakeeffect will decrease. pic.twitter.com/SFh76yoQe8— UW-Madison CIMSS (@UWCIMSS) December 31, 2017
