Wind chills well below zero hitting Michiana
After snow made the headlines across Michiana over the past few days, it's the cold's turn to take center stage.
Temperatures will dip to their lowest points of the season so far across southwest Michigan and northern Indiana, with air temperatures near or below zero and wind chills in the double digits below zero to start Wednesday morning.
The colder weather will be farther away from Lake Michigan this time around. Clear skies will allow thermometer readings to drop a few more degrees compared to spots that still see some lake-effect cloud cover.
Most of northern Indiana is under a Wind Chill Advisory for Wednesday morning. Feels-like temperatures could dip to -20° or below in some spots. Due to these frigid wind chills, a number of local schools have two hour delays or e-learning days in place for Wednesday.
Plymouth Community School Corporation will be having an eLearning Day on Wednesday, January 26, 2022. Students can find eLearning assignments on the eLearning hub at 9 a.m. by visiting: https://t.co/kNAnXiZCJ8. pic.twitter.com/oiEJXLIxgf— Menominee Elementary (@MenomineePCSC) January 25, 2022

Wind chills for most of Wednesday will stay below zero, so even during the heat of the day, it won't feel warm at all outside. We might have to wait until February to get fully out of the "deep-freezer" here in Michiana.
