Dangerous wind chills prompt warnings

A combination of near zero or below zero temperatures and winds gusting 20 to 30 mph will create wind chills of 30 below in the north to 20 below in southern areas, said Margaret Curtis, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Gray, Maine.
The strong winds are associated with a developing nor'easter that is expected to drop 8 to 12 inches of snow on central and southern areas, with up to 14 inches on the Seacoast by the time it winds down Friday morning.
Curtis said the storm could create near blizzard conditions at times overnight, especially closer to the coast.
"If you don't need to travel, just sit down by the fire and have some hot chocolate," she said.
The storm may also bring coastal flooding concerns as tides could run about a foot above normal.
Curtis said Hampton would be the area of most concern, but that any flooding at the time of high tide over the next two days should be minor.
