MILWAUKEE (AP) - The Milwaukee County Medical Examiner’s Office is investigating a possible cold weather death.

Authorities say an autopsy will be done Thursday on the body of a 40-year-old woman found on a sidewalk on Milwaukee’s north side. The medical examiner says the woman had a core body temperature of 80 degrees.

Dangerously cold weather has settled into Wisconsin where frostbite is a possibility in a matter of minutes.

Steady wind Thursday pushed wind chill readings to 35 below in many parts of Wisconsin. Some school districts canceled classes, including Mercer and Florence, and others delayed the start of school by a couple hours.

The National Weather Service issued a wind chill advisory for most of the state.
