NORTHERN INDIANA — 2018 is starting on a bitterly cold note with high temperatures struggling out of the single digits for most areas.
The National Weather Service in Northern Indiana has issued a hazardous weather outlook for much of the area, including Kosciusko and surrounding counties.
Bitterly cold temperatures are expected all day Monday, Jan. 1, and tonight. Light lake effect snow accumulations are likely over far southwest Michigan into northwest Indiana today.
Tuesday, Jan. 2, through Sunday, Jan. 7 — bitterly cold temperatures are expected through much of this week. The cold air will be accompanied by periodic lake effect snow. System snow is forecast this weekend. Snow accumulations are likely.
Frostbite and hypothermia can occur if precautions are not taken, so be sure to wear a hat and gloves. The cold wind chills will cause frostbite in as little as 30 minutes to exposed skin.
