The National Weather Service has issued a blizzard warning in effect until 7 a.m. Monday, Jan. 6, 2013 for Elkhart and nearby counties.

A wind chill warning also remains in effect from 1 a.m. Monday until 8 p.m. Tuesday.

Temperature will drop drastically overnight with lows between 5 below and 15 below zero, weather service says. Deadly wind chills between 30 below and 45 below can be expected Sunday night through Tuesday.

North winds will shift northwest and increase 25 to 35 mph, with gusts to 40 mph Sunday evening causing severe blowing and drifting.

Due to the winter storm, county agencies are working together to alleviate the poor road conditions, according to a press release from the Elkhart County Sheriff's Department.

No travel on county roadways is permitted during the emergency. The only exception to this provision is for emergency crews and county highway workers carrying out their official duties.

Elkhart County Highway is asking that citizens be patient as the roadways are still continuing to be cleared. It is very important to stay off the roadways until the emergency has been lifted.
