Lake-effect snow could be heavy early Christmas morning
ABC57 First Warning Neighborhood Weather Forecast
Thursday, December 24 (Christmas Eve), 2020
Lake-effect snow will start to become more prevalent tonight across Michiana. Temperatures will stay cold, with lows in the teens and feels-like temperatures in the single digits. The heaviest snow will fall overnight into early Christmas morning across Berrien and Cass counties in Michigan. Travel will also be hazardous early tomorrow morning for portions of the Toll Road through LaPorte and St. Joseph counties in Indiana.
Snow showers will wind down during the afternoon on Christmas Day. Most of the holiday weekend will be quiet, with some sunshine peeking out by Saturday afternoon. Highs will finish around the freezing mark. Another quick warm-up arrives on Sunday, sending highs back into the middle 40s and melting most of the Christmas snow. Rain and snow showers are possible Sunday night into Monday morning. At this point, this doesn't look to be a major hiccup for Michiana. Most of Monday and Tuesday are quiet with highs in the low 30s before our next bigger system arrives on Wednesday.
