Dangerous wind chills returning to area

The National Weather Service has issued a wind-chill warning until noon Wednesday for northeast Indiana and northwest Ohio, saying dangerous wind chills are imminent and frostbite of exposed skin can occur within minutes.

Wind chills throughout the area will be 15 to 25 below zero this afternoon and 25 to 35 below zero by this evening, the weather service said in its warning.

Those wind chills will continue into Tuesday, with a slow improvement Tuesday night into Wednesday, the weather service said.

It said travel will be hazardous because of previously drifted snow across many roads, and encouraged caution, especially in open areas.

In addition, an area including LaGrange and Steuben counties in Indiana and Williams County, Ohio, has a winter weather advisory until 7 p.m. tonight, the weather service said.

In that area, it said, travel will be hazardous through this afternoon because of lake-effect snow showers and blowing and drifting snow causing reduced visibilities. Whiteout conditions will be possible at times, the weather service said.
