FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WFFT) — It’s been cloudy and cold these past few days so why not add a little snow.
An area of low pressure that is situated near northern Texas Tuesday afternoon will lift just south of Indiana Wednesday morning.
This will bring light snowfall for northeast Indiana and northwest Ohio.
Light snow will start falling near daybreak Wednesday so plan accordingly as any untreated roads could become slick for the morning commute.
Light snow will begin to taper off Wednesday afternoon leaving us with a few flurries possible in the evening.
Highs are expected to top out in the lower 30s.
Locally, this is not a robust winter storm.
Moisture is pretty limited so only light snowfall is expected during the day Wednesday.
When it’s all said and done, snowfall totals could range between 1-2 inches south of US 224 and up to 1 inch is possible north of US 224.
NEW ENGLAND SNOW
This is all part of the same system that brought snow to the southern Plains Tuesday that will move to the New England states for Wednesday and Thursday.
Much like a week ago, this low will team up with another one off the East coast and become a powerful Nor’easter.
A look at the expected timing and evolution of the precipitation for the upcoming winter storm on Wednesday-Thursday. Greatest uncertainties remain how far north into NY/New England the heavy snow gets & the location of the snow-ice-rain transition along the I-95 DC-NYC corridor. pic.twitter.com/s6CkgzWYRk
