12z GFS has this as two waves. First  comes as a clipper and exits the Western Lakes 25-26. Next is a system out of NM as a GLC 26-28.

I live in northern Indiana.  I won 2 tickets to the Blackhawks - Bruins hockey game on January 1.  It's going to be held at Notre Dame stadium.  Really need to know how cold it will be that day.  Going to be outside.  My first hockey game. Anybody got any predictions?

I predict the Blackhawks to lose. Oh the temps? Models show cold blast coming in after the snowstorm.

I heard the Blackhawks weren't having a good year but as a native Chicagoan I support them. I am into football and basketball not so much hockey.  My kids love it though.  Anyway, thank you for posting your prediction. Looks like I better prepare to bundle up. Those lake effect winds and snowstorms can be brutal!  ;)

Here’s what it looks like now....not exactly a white Christmas.  If this snow pans out, I’ll post an “after” pic or two.

No snow fence for me.  Most of the people way out in the country do though.  I’m just on the outside of a dinky little town, so a little protection from the west/nw.
