ELKHART — The National Weather Service has extended a lake effect snow advisory until 7 p.m. today, Jan. 22.

According to the NWS, there may be a period of diminished intensity and coverage but lake effect snow showers are expected to continue into this evening across parts of northern Indiana and much of south Michigan.

Accumulations of 1 to 2 inches of snow are expected Tuesday with additional light accumulations expected overnight.

Cold temperatures and the snow could make for hazardous road conditions across northeastern LaPorte, western St. Joseph, Cass and Elkhart counties.

Temperatures will remain in the single digits into Tuesday night with gusty west winds that will keep wind chill values between minus-7 and minus-12 degrees.

Although the weather service reports that a wind chill advisory expired at 11 a.m., Accuweather says moderate cold weather — with lower-than-average temperatures — will remain in place into Sunday.

Temperatures may approach levels not reached in the past two to four years in a number of locations by the middle of the week from the upper Midwest into the Northeast, reports Accuweather.



 A 15-year-old boy, seen sitting on a stretcher center, who stowed away in the wheel well of a flight from San Jose, Calif., to Maui is loaded into an ambulance at Kahului Airport in Kahului, Maui, Hawaii Sunday afternoon, April 20, 2014. The boy survived the trip halfway across the Pacific Ocean unharmed despite frigid temperatures at 38,000 feet and a lack of oxygen, FBI and airline officials said. FBI spokesman Tom Simon in Honolulu told The Associated Press on Sunday night that the boy was questioned by the FBI after being discovered on the tarmac at the Maui airport with no identification.
