Coldest air since April moving in; wind chills well into the 20s

Who's ready for a blast of winter? Well, hopefully you are because the coldest weather in nearly six months is heading for the Midwest and Great Lakes.

Feels like temperatures Saturday morning.
Temperatures will fall into the 20s and 30s by Saturday morning across most of the Midwest and Great Lakes. That has prompted widespread Freeze Warnings for parts of Wisconsin, Illinois, Iowa, Missouri, Nebraska, Kansas, and Oklahoma. 

Add in some blustery winds and you have the recipe for wind chills in the upper teens and 20s from the Dakotas to Indiana.

Feels like temperatures Saturday.
For many, it will be the coldest night since late April or early May. For South Bend, the wind chill is expected to bottom out at 25° by 8 a.m. Saturday.

If that does indeed happen, it'll be the coldest wind chill temperature the city has seen since April 28th. That's 166 days ago if you're keeping count.

Saturday forecast for South Bend.
Fortunately, sunshine will help warm us up into the lower 50s by Saturday afternoon. However, it will stay breezy through the entirety of the weekend, making things feel chilly.

Additional nights in the 30s are possible early next week, but Friday night is looking like the coldest night of the next 10 days.
