... Change in wind chill threshold for watch warnings and advisories...

Starting December 3rd 2014 the threshold for wind chill watch...
warnings and advisories will drop 5 degrees for the Blue Ridge of
Virginia and areas west... western and north central Maryland... and
all of eastern West Virginia.

These wind chill thresholds will become:
* -10 degrees for wind chill advisories
* -25 degrees for wind chill warnings

Wind chill watches will be for the potential of -25 degrees as
well.

Counties and independent cities impacted by this change include:
* in Maryland... Allegany, Washington, Frederick, Carroll.
* In West Virginia... Pendleton, Hampshire, Hardy, Grant, Mineral,
Morgan, Berkeley, Jefferson.
* In Virginia... Highland, Augusta, Staunton, Waynesboro,
Rockingham, Harrisonburg, Page, Shenandoah, Warren, Clarke,
Frederick, Winchester, and the two new Blue Ridge forecast zones
that will also come into existence on December 3rd 2014.

This is being done to reflect the colder climate in our western
and northwestern counties and cities after a study of wind chill
values over the past several Winters. This will align well with
similar thresholds to the west and north of these areas in
neighboring weather forecast office areas.

If you have any questions or comments... contact the National
Weather Service forecast office in Sterling Virginia.
