FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WFFT) — An area of low pressure brought a trail mix of wintry precipitation to northeast Indiana and northwest Ohio.
The system brought snow, sleet and freezing rain to the area Monday evening and the precipitation continued for Tuesday.
There were a few slick spots on the roadways Tuesday morning which caused headaches for some commuters.
As a whole, the system overachieved on ice and underperformed with snow for our region.
The warmer nose of air aloft surged in sooner than anticipated which led to more ice than snow.
Ice accumulations by early Tuesday afternoon generally ranged from 0.10 inches to 0.20 inches.

However, 0.35 inches of ice from freezing rain and sleet was registered in the Grant County town of Van Buren.
Snowfall totals were unimpressive with many locations with less than an inch.
