Heavy Snow Arrives in Northwest Indiana
Heavy snow is forecast to spread across northwest Indiana, as the latest winter storm system arrives. National Weather Service is forecasting between 3 and 7 inches of snow for our area today and another 3 inches before it tapers off tonight. Meterologist Gino Ayse in Chicago says we could see a mix of precipitation fall at first.
The afternoon commute will be very difficult for many motorists. Police advise motorists to leave early and to drive carefully, as snow plow crews will have a tough time keeping up with the snowfall.
Road crews have already been out in many communities, pre-treating the pavement to make it a little easier to clear away the snow when it starts to accumulate.
