A wind chill warning is in effect for Havre and Chinook through Monday morning.

Wind chills could range between minus 30 and minus 50 degrees for the next two days, the National Weather Service warns.

Under those conditions, frostbite can occur within 10 minutes of exposed skin, the weather service said.

People headed outside should be prepared for "dangerously cold conditions," the warning reads.
