The following statement was issued Sunday by the National Weather Service of Northern Indiana:
Snow associated with a low pressure system over Iowa will continue across our area this morning. Two to four inches of new snow is expected.
The snow should taper off by early afternoon, but winds will increase this afternoon causing blowing and drifting snow. An arctic cold front will sweep across the area tonight.
A period of snow and increasing winds are expected to accompany the arctic front, leading to significant blowing and drifting snow which could render some roads impassable.
Temperatures and wind chills will fall rapidly behind the front to dangerous levels Monday through Wednesday morning.
The winter weather advisory remains in effect until 7 a.m. Monday. Travel will be hazardous into Monday morning due to snow, and blowing and drifting snow.
Dangerous wind chills are expected Monday through Wednesday, which can lead to frostbite of exposed skin in a matter of minutes. Be prepared for snow covered roads and limited visibilities, and use caution while driving.
