We are tracking dangerously cold temperatures to kick-off 2018. This morning, Lafayette dropped to -16° with wind chill values dropping to -40° in some places across the viewing area. The frigid weather pattern is going to linger for much of the upcoming week.

The National Weather Service has issued a Wind Chill Warning for Tippecanoe, Fountain, Warren, Montgomery, Clinton, Carroll and Howard counties beginning this evening until 1 p.m. EST Tuesday.

A Wind Chill Warning is also in effect for White, Pulaski, Fulton, Miami, and Cass counties beginning tonight until Noon EST Tuesday.

A Wind Chill Advisory has been issued for Benton, Newton and Jasper counties until 1 p.m. EST Tuesday.

Temperatures are going to struggle to rise near zero in Lafayette this afternoon with sub-zero wind chills in the forecast throughout the day. Wind chills down to -40° will be possible, especially tonight and early Tuesday morning as lows fall near -14° in Greater Lafayette. Stay indoors as much as possible. If you have to be outside, wear many layers, hats and gloves. Frost bite can occur within minutes with the bitter temperatures we are experiencing across the area.

Higher pressure will provide the area with mostly clear skies through Tuesday. The first supermoon of 2018 will occur tonight around 9:30 EST and the clear conditions will make it ideal to see. The super moon will appear bigger and brighter. There will also be another opportunity to see a supermoon on January 31. Flurries return to the area on Wednesday.
