'Dangerously Cold Wind Chills' Begin This Evening

This could lead to sloppy road conditions Sunday night and for the Monday morning drive. Friday morning's wind chill, which will be about minus 18 when children are supposed to be waiting at bus stops, might cause local school districts to at least call for a delay. Despite the sunshine, temperatures will struggle to climb through the low teens and gusts of 40-50 miles per hour will keep wind chill values well below zero through the day.

Wind Chill Advisories have been issued across much of the region, but areas well north are under Wind Chill Warnings where there is a potential to feel like -35 degrees. Wind chills could be as cold as 20 below zero then.

The First Warning Storm Team is tracking frigid temperatures and unsafe wind chills. Warmer air finally arrives as we head into the weekend but Saturday will still be quite chilly with highs approaching the freezing mark. Another cold night Saturday with lows falling into the single digits.

Wind Chill Advisory much of area tonight/Friday morning – Lake-effect Snow Advisory for portions of NW Indiana into SW Lower Michigan tonight/Friday and Friday night

SATURDAY NIGHT: Partly cloudy skies continue, with a low of 9 degrees. More clouds on Tuesday with highs in the low and mid 50s. If outside during this time, make sure to protect exposed skin such as ears, cheeks and hands, as frostbite can develop in less than 30 minutes.

Sunday will be mostly cloudy with a high of 27. By Sunday afternoon, temperatures will climb to around the low to mid 20s.

MILDER 8-DAY FORECAST!: Temps will stay above freezing for most of the 8-Day Forecast, and could even get close to 50 by mid to late week! Expect some rain throughout the day.
