NWS NorthernIndiana (Northern Indiana and Northeastern Ohio)

...Negative Wind Chills and Drifting Snow Through Late This Morning... The combination of single digit air temperatures and north winds of 10 to 20 mph will result in wind chill values of 2 degrees below zero to 15 degrees below zero. These wind chills can cause frostbite in as little as 30 minutes to exposed skin. Take frequent breaks to warm up and dress in layers if venturing outdoors this morning. Blowing and drifting snow is also expected to continue this morning. This will prolong ongoing hazardous driving conditions, especially on east to west roads. Some rural roads may have become impassable overnight. Do not attempt to drive through snow drifts as you may get stuck and become stranded. As a precaution, if you must travel, pack extra blankets, food, water and a shovel as an emergency kit.
