Tonights forecast is a bit better: "WIND CHILL ADVISORY REMAINS IN EFFECT UNTIL 5 AM AST TUESDAY...
A WIND CHILL ADVISORY REMAINS IN EFFECT UNTIL 5 AM AST TUESDAY. TEMPERATURES OF 10 TO 20 BELOW COMBINED WITH SUSTAINED WINDS OF 15 TO 25 MPH WILL RESULT IN LOCAL WIND CHILLS TO 40 BELOW ZERO."
Where your coats and bundle up Ya All.... looks like this is going to continue through Wednesday http://www.weatherforyou.com/weather/alaska/wasilla.html
