A blast of arctic cold has expected to set a record low at or near 8 degrees in South Bend, early Wednesday morning, Nov. 13. The wind chill is expected to drop to sub-zero single digits during that time, as well.
The frigid air mass produced heavy lake effect snow along Lake Michigan, dumping heavy snow on parts of northern Indiana and southwest Michigan.
Among the highest snowfall total as of Tuesday morning was 10.6 inches near the city of Goshen.
WOW! ❄️❄️ 18″ of snow measured in Dunlap/Elkhart area that was under that heavy snow squall!
