Rain changes over to snow Tuesday evening. It may be heavy at times overnight, dropping 1 to 2 inches of snow in less than an hour. Lows will be in the low 30s. For Wednesday morning's commute, roads will be slick as snow continues to fall. Make sure to take your time when heading into work in the morning.
Everyone is under a Winter Weather Advisory from 7 p.m. Tuesday night until 1 a.m. Thursday morning. Significant snow is going to fall during this period. Elkhart, Lagrange, Steuben, and northern Kosciusko, Noble and Dekalb Counties are going to see over 6 inches of snow. Whitley, Allen, Defiance, Paulding, Wabash, Huntington, Wells, Adams, Van Wert, Grant, Blackford and southern Kosciusko, Noble, Dekalb Counties will see 4 to 6 inches. Isolated totals above 6 inches will be possible. Jay and Mercer Counties are going to see between 2 to 4 inches of snow.
It's going to be a heavy, wet snow, so make sure to not over-work yourself while shoveling. Take frequent breaks if you feel like you need them. Travel will be difficult as there will be low visibility and slick roads. Blowing snow will be a threat Wednesday night into Thursday, which will continue to make travel difficult.
Snow continues Wednesday. Northerly winds will range from 10 to 15 mph, with gusts reaching up to 20 mph. As winds pick up in the afternoon, blowing and drifting snow will be possible. Under cloudy skies, highs will be in the low 30s. Snow tapers off Wednesday night. Lows will be in the low 20s.
Lake effect snow showers begin on Thursday. I don't think it's going to add much to the snow totals from the day before, because it will be a light and fluffy snow. Highs will be in the mid 20s. Under partly cloudy skies Thursday night, temperatures will fall into the mid teens, so you're going to want to bundle up Friday morning.
A few lake effect snow showers will still be possible as we wrap up the week. Highs will be in the mid to upper 20s as we keep mostly cloudy skies. We'll see a few breaks in the clouds Friday night, but temperatures will be cold. Lows will be in the mid teens.
Some more sunshine begins to peek back through the clouds on Saturday.
I'll have the details tonight in your FOX 55 Severe Weather Center Forecast at 10!
