Winter Weather, Wind Chill Advisories In Effect for Kankakee Valley

 
 

A winter weather advisory is in effect until noon Central today for the WKVI listening area. We’re also under a wind chill advisory until late Wednesday morning. Strong gusting winds of around 35 miles-per-hour will cause snow to blow and drift this morning. This in turn could make some roads impassable and cause localized white-out conditions in open areas. Please do not call county dispatch centers for updates on road conditions, as dispatchers are busy fielding emergency calls and sending help. Call 1- 800-261-7623 for road condition information or visit the Indiana Department of Transportation’s website at www.trafficwise.in.gov.

Wind Chill Advisory Remains In Effect, More Snow on the Way

 
 

In addition to the bitterly cold temperatures, we’re also in for more snow this weekend. A wind chill advisory is in effect for the WKVI listening area through midday, and a winter weather advisory has been issued through Saturday afternoon. Wind chills of between 15 and 25 below will continue this morning, according to the National Weather Service. On top of that, southwest winds will cause snow to blow and drift. More snow is possible across the area later today into the evening hours. It’s expected to taper off Saturday morning, but areas to our north could get additional lake effect snow. The combination of snow and strong winds will create hazardous travel conditions. Motorists should prepare for snow-covered roads and limited visibilities, especially in open areas. If you do go out this morning, cover any exposed skin, as frostbite and hypothermia can occur quickly when it is this cold. Several schools have either canceled classes today or are operating on two-hour delays. That list is posted on our closings and delays page: http://www.wkvi.com/closings-and-delays/

Winter Weather Advisory in Effect Through New Year’s Day

 

 
 

Look for 2014 to get off to a snowy start. The National Weather Service has issued a Winter Weather Advisory through noon tomorrow for the WKVI listening area. That means periods of snow will cause travel difficulties. Snow accumulations of between 2 and 5 inches are expected overnight into tomorrow, and more snow is possible Wednesday night into Thursday. As a result, roads will become slick and snow-covered late into the evening, and visibility will be limited. Keep this in mind if you’re out, and allow ample time to reach your destination.
