Strong winds and arctic air make for a bitterly cold afternoon
Good afternoon everyone! We saw a couple rounds of snow this morning that led to hazardous driving conditions. Strong winds caused blowing snow and at times white out conditions. The heavy accumulating snow has come to an end but some flurries and isolated snow showers are still possible this afternoon.
The Winter Weather Advisory has been extended until 3pm for portions of Indiana. Wind gusts to 40 mph could cause reduced visibility at times and dangerous wind chills to -10º are possible.
Arctic air will continue settling into the region dropping our temperatures through the afternoon. We are now down into the teens in many locations!
You are really going to need the layers today, cover up any exposed skin if you are headed out. Many areas already feel below zero.
Sustained winds 15 to 25 mph and gusts up to 40 mph will continue through the day.
By tomorrow morning temperatures will barely be above zero and wind chills will continue to be subzero. We get a brief break from the cold on Thursday and Friday with highs in the 40s. Arctic air returns for the weekend into the start of next week.
