afternoon and evening will likely transition to snow Thursday
night. Snow may be moderate to heavy at times through Saturday

especially near Lake Michigan. Westerly winds could gust as
high as 55 mph, and will cause blowing and drifting.

* WHERE...Portions of northern Indiana, southwest Michigan and

snow could significantly reduce visibility. The hazardous
conditions could impact the morning or evening commutes. Gusty
winds could bring down tree branches. The cold wind chills as
low as 30 below zero could cause frostbite on exposed skin in
as little as 30 minutes.

* ADDITIONAL DETAILS...Dangerous cold is expected Thursday night
into Sunday. Low temperatures will be in the single digits above
and below zero. High temperatures will be in the single digits
and teens above zero. Wind chill values could fall to around 20
to 30 below zero at times. The lowest wind chills will be Friday
into Saturday. Additional snow accumulations are expected near
Lake Michigan through Sunday in west-northwest wind favored
snow belts.
