ELKHART — More snow and bitter cold will dominate much of the forecast across parts of northern Indiana through Monday, Jan. 27, the National Weather Service said.

Much of the region is expected to wake up to subzero temperatures Friday morning, Jan. 24.

Blowing winds and a continued chance of snow will make for difficult driving conditions in some areas, the weather service said.

Friday morning temperatures could fall to 9 below zero and wind chill values could plummet to minus 25. Winds will be strong and gusting occasionally to 35 mph.

A wind chill advisory issued by the weather service is in effect until 1 p.m. Friday.

Strong winds and a continued chance of snow Friday and Saturday could result in snow-covered roads and reduced visibility in some areas, the weather service said.

A chance of light snow exists Friday during the day, but one to three inches is forecast for Friday night, the weather service said.

Saturday includes another chance of light snow and gusty winds will continue through the day Saturday. The high temp will be around 21 and the low will fall to 3.

Snow is likely Sunday, Jan. 26, with accumulations of three to five inches, according to Evan Bentley, a meteorologist for the weather service in North Webster.

Sunday’s high will be around 24, and the low will be near 5.

More snow is expected Monday and temperatures will again fall below zero.

 In this July 16, 2013 aerial file photo, the downtown of the city of Detroit is shown. Detroit Emergency Manager Kevyn Orr raised more than a few eyebrows a year ago when he took the city into bankruptcy and predicted it would be out by the time his term expired in fall 2014. Because it is by far the largest city to file for municipal bankruptcy and the issues were so complex many experts predicted it would take years to resolve. But the city will take a major step toward that goal with a trial in federal bankruptcy court that starts Tuesday, Sept 2, 2014. (AP Photo/Paul Sancya, File)
