Darwin Adams, age 10, of St. Ignatius, drew today's weather picture. Weather art from Montana kids runs every day in the Missoulian. To offer your child's (or students') creations, please send the artwork on an 8.5x11-inch piece of paper and carefully print your phone number and the name, age, birth date and hometown of the student. Horizontal pictures work best. Send pictures to Missoulian Weather Drawing, Missoulian, P.O.Box 8029, Missoula, MT 59807-8029. The newspaper holds on to each drawing for a month or so after publication, if you wish to stop by and retrieve it.

Good Wednesday morning, western Montana! A wind chill advisory remains in effect until 11 a.m. The National Weather Service says winds of 10-20 mph, and gusts to 30 mph, will create wind chills of 10 below to 20 below zero - so bundle up and take care.

"A wind chill advisory means that very cold air and winds will combine to generate low wind chills," the Weather Service says. "This will result in frostbite and lead to hypothermia if precautions are not taken. If you must venture outdoors, make sure you wear a hat and gloves."

Skies will be cloudy today, as temperatures warm to just 14 degrees. And with the wind chill, it will continue feel below zero.

Tonight, look for partly cloudy conditions and lows dropping to minus 7. Winds will be calm.

Here is the Weather Service's daily forecast for the rest of the week:

Thursday: Mostly sunny, with a high near 12. Wind chill values as low as -6. East northeast wind 3 to 7 mph.
