Snow will start by around 9 or 10 AM Sunday morning. The system will be tracking from west to east, so counties like LaGrange and Kosciusko won’t see snow until around 10AM-12PM. Snow will intensify during the afternoon and evening as the system moves across Michiana. By the evening, 1-4 inches will be possible. An addition 1-2 inches will fall overnight and a N-S lake effect snow band will set up.
