ELKHART COUNTY — Another round of snow and subzero temperatures is heading toward Elkhart County, which the National Weather Service of Northern Indiana said could cause slick road conditions, limited visibility and extremely low wind chills on Thursday, Feb. 27.

The weather service issued a winter weather advisory that will be in effect from 1 a.m. to 5 p.m. Thursday. The advisory said one to two inches of snow are possible late Wednesday night and Thursday morning, with winds increasing to between 20 and 30 miles per hour overnight.

It is likely high winds will produce drifting snow, which could significantly reduce visibility, the weather service said.

Bitter winds and icy temperatures are expected to result in wind chills of -10 to -20 degrees. The weather service warns frostbite could occur in as little as 30 minutes in these conditions.
