Frigid Temperatures Expected in Parts of Virginia

Posted:

RICHMOND, Va. (AP)- Below-zero temperatures and wind gusts could create wind chills of minus 30 degrees in some parts of Virginia on Tuesday morning.

The National Weather Service has issued wind chill warnings from the Alleghany Highlands south to the Roanoke and New River valleys. The warnings are in effect from Monday evening through Tuesday afternoon.

The frigid temperatures could send more homeless people to shelters.

The city of Richmond says it will open a cold weather overflow shelter Monday night. A day warming shelter will open Tuesday.

Capt. Duane Burleigh with the Salvation Army in Harrisonburg says the organization is prepared to handle such situations.

He says the main shelter has 72 beds for men, women and families. If the shelter reaches capacity, the organization can open its church as a shelter.
