WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) – The Winter Storm Warning expired at 1 p.m. Wednesday, but the National Weather Service said a Wind Child Advisory will remain in effect for Thursday.

NWS said a Wind Chill Advisory remains in effect for Thursday from 5 a.m. until noon EST. A Wind Chill Advisory means cold air and strong winds will combine to generate low wind chills, which could results in frost bite or hypothermia. Dress appropiately and make sure to bundle up for the conditions, if you must go outside.

NWS said additional snow accumulations will only be one inch or less, but the main concerns will be the bitter wind chills and blowing and drifting of snow.

NWS said there will be bitter cold wind chills overnight, with values at 10 to 20 degrees below zero.

In addition, winds will gust up to 25 mph up until Wednesday mid-day. These gusts will cause blowing and drifting of snow and likely reduce visability.
