It isn't just us facing the storm. States like Texas, Oklahoma, and Arkansas are already battling this system and have the same warnings.
Focusing on this morning, the roads could be slick in a few spots because of the overnight snow. An extra 5 minutes should be enough to get you to work safely. There is a brief lull in snow later this morning and early afternoon.
The system reaches Michiana after 5 p.m., but the heaviest snow is from 7 p.m. through midnight.
Your drive home could be a bit slow going. Be very cautious with any overnight travel during the heaviest periods. Parts of Michiana could pick up more than 6” of snow with this system.
A few snow showers linger into early Tuesday morning. Watch for blowing/drifting snow and some slick spots on Tuesday’s commute. The rest of Tuesday and Wednesday should stay dry.
