Winter storm arrives tonight
Today will be mainly dry across Michiana, but the northwest side may see some quick, light showers midday. The wintry system moves in later in the evening, after 7 PM. Precipitation will start as rain, turning into snow after midnight. Snow will last into Monday morning, and lake effect snow bands will develop during the day.
The system snowfall accumulation will vary widely across Michiana. Less than 1" is expected for our southern counties, and totals will be higher the further north you go. 4-6" will be the highest amount, possible for northern Berrien County.
A Winter Weather Advisory will be in effect from midnight tonight to 1 PM Monday for Berrien, Cass, St. Joseph (MI), LaPorte and St. Joseph (IN) counties. This area will have slick conditions due to +2" of snow, windy conditions and low visibility. Winds will pick up as the system moves through, gusting around 30 mph Sunday night to Monday, and around 40-50 mph near Lake Michigan. Coastal flooding is possible due to the strong winds creating huge waves.

Tuesday: Mostly cloudy with a slight chance for lake effect snow in Michigan, but more lake effect possible at night with accumulations less than 2". Highs in the mid 20s.
