Live Doppler 13 Weather Blog: Bitter air returns Monday night

Windchills near zero with scattered lake effect flurries/snow showers into Tuesday morning and it will be even colder Wednesday.

As expected, high temperatures Monday afternoon reached the upper 30s thanks to a blustery southwesterly wind. This allowed the early morning slick spots to melt away and it was warm enough for rain to mix with the light snow.

Precipitation continues to ease this evening as the lift from a cold front departs to the east. Let's hope the wind will evaporate any moisture on roads and sidewalks before much colder air arrives tonight.

Refreezing of any lingering moisture and/or untreated surfaces is likely with low temperature from upper single digits north to mid-teens in the central and southern parts of the state. The bitter flow off of Lake Michigan cranks up the Lake Michigan snow machine. Heaviest amounts, as usual, will be just off the shore, but some of the "streamers" make into central/southern Indiana with a combination of flurries/snow showers.

A fresh coating is possible especially north and northeast of Indy. Additional slick spots heading that way out of Indy are possible Tuesday morning. Wind chills near zero will impacts the entire area and it's even more harsh Wednesday morning. That's when wind chills bottom out in the -15 to -10 range, possibly cold enough for some school delays Wednesday morning.
