ELKHART — Temperatures began plummeting by sunrise Monday, Jan. 6, and had fallen 13 degrees in a six-hour span in Elkhart.

By noon Monday, the temperature had fallen to minus-12 as many parts of the region began digging out from heavy snow made worse by blowing winds. Comparatively, at 5:30 a.m., the temperature in Goshen was 1 degree, according to WNDU, which had figures from the National Weather Service.

Monday’s forecast includes a chance of snow showers. Accumulations are expected to be less than an inch, the weather service said.

Monday night’s low was expected to fall to minus-14 degrees with wind chills reaching possibly minus-40, the National Weather Service said.

A winter storm warning for the region is set to expire at 4 p.m. Monday.

A wind chill warning was scheduled to remain in effect until 8 p.m. Tuesday.

Tuesday’s forecast calls for winds upwards of 20 mph and a chance of snow that will lead to minor accumulations. Blowing and drifting snow, though, could continue through the day.

Tuesday’s high will be around zero and the overnight low will be minus-5 with wind chills dipping to minus-15 to minus-25, the weather service said.

According to weather service figures made available by WNDU, Elkhart received 9 inches of snow, but Wakarusa received 12.3 inches. Fort Wayne set a record snow fall mark with 9.5 inches.
