INDIANAPOLIS — The National Weather Service has issued a Wind Chill Advisory for portions of Central Indiana until 11 a.m. Friday.
The NWS expects strong winds around 15 to 20 mph with gusts near 35 mph driving wind chill values to -5 to -15 degrees Friday morning.
These winds along with the overnight powdery snow will result in some blowing and drifting on area roadways, particularly north-south oriented roads.
A Wind Chill Advisory means that very cold air and strong winds will combine to generate low wind chills.
This will result in frost bite and lead to hypothermia if precautions are not taken. If you must venture outside, make sure you wear a hat, gloves and coat.
If your child’s school does not delay class this morning, do everything you can to keep them covered up or inside while waiting for the bus.
Counties included in the advisory are:
