WARSAW — While the amount of accumulating snow fell short of expectations in Warsaw overnight, subzero temperatures and strong winds will be the main concern on Friday.

Meteorologist Matt Rudkin predicts temperatures will not rise above zero on Friday and will fall to about -7 during the day.

Wind chills are expected to be as cold as minus 40 Friday.

Conditions north of US 6 are expected to be much worse as lake-effect snow from Lake Michigan begins to churn and continue through Saturday.

Rudkin predicts areas north of US 6 could see 12 or more inches of snow through Saturday night.

Areas affected by lake effect include Porter, LaPorte, St Joseph, and Elkhart counties in Indiana and Berrien, Cass and St. Joseph counties in Michigan, Rudkin said.
Saturday will see a high of 8 and a low of minus 2, Rudkin predicts.
