All day snow Wednesday; snow continues into Thursday
A winter storm is here in Michiana – it will bring snow all day Wednesday. Additional snow is likely Thursday, in addition to gusty winds and blowing snow.
Roads could be slick this morning early before snow starts to accumulate. The best advice is to stay off the roads as much as possible today – but if it is necessary to travel, give yourself plenty of extra time. By normal morning commute hours, we could see up to 6” of snow on the ground. We will continue to add to these totals through the afternoon and evening – expect around one foot of snow total today.
Temperatures are in the lower 30s this morning, but will fall into the mid 20s by afternoon. The wind picks up as the day continues.
We’ll get a brief lull in snow later this evening, but another round of snow moves through on Thursday. Accumulations are not as high Thursday, especially for the northwest portion of Michiana.
With gusty winds, however, blowing and drifting snow could become problematic. Visibility with blowing snow could be extremely low at times. Drifting snow will be a bigger issue in rural areas.
Snow wraps up before the end of the day Thursday. While there’s no new snow on Friday – roads could still be messy, especially for the Friday morning commute.
Temperatures take a nose dive to end the week, with a high of 20 on Thursday and 18 Friday. Overnight lows fall into the single digits. Some improvement in temperatures starting Sunday.
Today: All day snow. Temperatures fall from 30.
Tonight: Snow showers. Windy. Low 18.
Thursday: Snow. Windy with blowing/drifting snow. High 20.
Friday: Mostly sunny. High 18.
