Rain starts Tuesday afternoon; snow tonight
While this morning is quiet out the door, a winter storm is on the way. Rain showers start after the lunch hour, and become more numerous/widespread by tonight. As temperatures drop, rain will turn to snow. The snow will continue through Wednesday and Thursday. Considering this winter storm in three parts is helpful, as it is a long duration event.
Part one: Tuesday overnight / early Wednesday morning. Rain showers gradually turn to snow. Before this happens, roads could become slick / icy before snow starts to accumulate.
Part two: Wednesday. Snow continues throughout the entire day. Periods of heavy snow are possible. Michiana will likely have snow totals in the 6-10” range for the day.
Part three: Thursday. Additional snow accumulations Thursday. Wind gusts up to 35 mph will mean blowing / drifting snow and periods of low visibility. Snow tapers off later in the day.
The winter storm warning will come to an end at 7 p.m. Thursday.
Roads could still be messy on Friday, otherwise, no new snow that day.
Temperatures take a nose dive the second half of this week. Expect highs in the upper teens to low 20s Thursday through Saturday. A slight improvement in temperatures starting Sunday and taking us into next week.
Tuesday: Increasing clouds. Breezy. Rain by evening. High 42.
Tonight: Rain turns to snow. Slick roads possible. Low 28.
