KALAMAZOO — Bitter cold temperatures coupled with light wind expected Sunday evening prompted the National Weather Service to issue another wind chill advisory that will last through noon Monday.
The advisory was scheduled to begin at 6 p.m. for every county in West Michigan with the exception of Berrien County.
Wind chills were expected to be as low as 20 to 25 degrees below zero and could cause frostbite on exposed skin in less than 30 minutes.
The advisory read "a wind chill advisory means that cold air and the wind will combine to create low wind chills. Frostbite and hypothermia can occur if precautions are not taken."

The cold temperatures and biting wind chills came at a bad time for the Kalamazoo Astronomical Society, who were planning a lunar eclipse watch gathering at the Kalamazoo Nature Center. The group encouraged its followers on social media to enjoy the lunar eclipse, but briefly.
