INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Travel advisories remain in effect across much of Indiana as cleanup continues from several inches of snowfall.

The National Weather Service issued a wind chill advisory for the Fort Wayne area with wind chill temperatures of about 15 below zero on Friday. The weather service reported air temperatures of colder than five below zero in parts of northern Indiana before dawn Friday.

Expected wind gusts of possibly 35 mph could cause travel troubles from snowfall that began Wednesday night and continued into Thursday.

Parts of northwestern Indiana's Lake County saw more than 9 inches of snow, while 6 inches or more of snow fell across central Indiana.

The state Department of Homeland Security reported Friday that 37 of Indiana's 92 counties had a travel advisory or watch in place.
