Temperatures Continue in the Negative; Wind Chill Warning in Effect

The National Weather Service has issued a wind chill warning for northern Indiana, predicting occasional snow, blowing and drifting snow, and bitterly cold temperatures. However, the Winter Weather Advisory has been allowed to expire for areas outside of lake effect snow showers. Steady or slowly falling temperatures will keep wind chills bitterly cold. A very slow improvement can be expected today and Wednesday.

The wind chill warning remains in effect until noon ET, 11 a.m. CT, on Wednesday.

Dangerous wind chills are imminent today through Wednesday. Frostbite of exposed skin can occur in a matter of minutes in these conditions. Hypothermia or even death is possible with prolonged exposure or for those not properly dressed for the cold.

Travel will be hazardous due to previously drifted snow across many roads.

The warning level travel advisory is still in effect for Starke County, restricting travel to emergency vehicles only. In Pulaski County, the warning level travel advisory has been removed, but a watch level advisory is still in effect, discouraging travel unless necessary. Marshall County has also lowered their advisory to the watch level, and the city of Plymouth has lifted travel restrictions for the city.

Numerous schools, organizations and businesses have reported closures or delays today. Visit the Closings and Delays page on our website for more information.
