— A Wind Chill Advisory is in effect with mainly clear skies and bitter cold. “Wind chills are expected to fall below minus 10 degrees with some as low as 20 below zero by morning,” Storm Center 7 Meteorologist McCall Vrydaghs said. The advisory is in effect until noon Wednesday for the entire region, except for Randolph County, Indiana, where the advisory ends at 7 a.m. Wednesday.
WEDNESDAY: A frigid morning with temperatures near zero and wind chills ranging between 10 below zero and 20 below zero. Clouds are expected to gradually increase through the day as a cold front approaches from the north, Vrydaghs said. Temperatures will reach highs near 20 degrees but wind chills will make it feel like the single digits. A few passing snow flurries or snow showers are possible towards the late afternoon and evening. “We’re not expected much more snow to stick than a possible dusting in some spots,” Vrydaghs said. Overnight lows will fall back into the lower single digits but will feel close to zero.
THURSDAY: A cold start to the day once again with temperatures starting out in the single digits. Mostly cloudy skies are expected with a few passing lake-effect show snowers in the evening, mainly in northern counties. Highs for the day will be in the lower teens but will drop quickly into the night. Lows will be below zero by Friday morning.
SATURDAY: Mostly sunny skies and frigid temperatures. Temperatures will start around 7 below zero and only reach a daytime high in the lower teens.
SUNDAY: Mostly cloudy skies, finally with a break in the bitter cold. Highs will climb into the lower 30s as rain and snow showers develop into the evening.
