Forecast updated 2:00pm EST - 7 Jan 2011

Students returning to Purdue's campus this weekend should expect cold and windy

conditions on Saturday, with temperatures stuggling to reach the low 20's and

wind chill values near zero most of the day. Winds are expected to be out of the

Northwest at 15-20 mph. These windy and cold conditions will generate bands of

lake-effect snow that should remain north of West Lafayette.

On Sunday, expect a slight warm-up, with temperatures

remaining in the mid- to upper-20's and lighter winds. The following graphic displays

sea level pressure (yellow), 1000-500mb thickness (a measure of temperature, dashed)
