The National Weather Service has issued a winter storm warning for parts of Northern Indiana, including Elkhart, LaGrange, Noble and Kosciusko counties. Weather Service officials posted this morning that a strong storm system will move quickly from the southeast Texas coast this morning and intensify as it lifts northeast through the Tennessee Valley tonight and then into southwest Pennsylvania by daybreak Wednesday. Snow will quickly overspread the region this afternoon from the southwest to the northeast and become heavy at times this evening into tonight. Total snowfall amounts by midday Wednesday are anticipated to be generally in the 6 to 10 inch range, with the highest amounts along and south of the Highway 24 corridor. Snowfall rates of 1 to 1.5 inches per hour are possible with greatly reduced visibilities this evening into the overnight. Farther northwest snowfall amounts should gradually taper to 2 to 6 inches across far northwest Indiana into extreme southwest Lower Michigan. In addition, north winds will increase and likely cause significant areas of blowing and drifting snow to develop later tonight and continue into midday Wednesday, especially in open and rural areas. This will primarily affect east to west roadways. Travel will become difficult, especially during the Wednesday morning commute across the region. Interstates 65, 69, 75 and 80 will be impacted. Primary roads, including U.S. 6, 24, 30, 31 and 33 will become snow covered and hazardous. Alternative travel plans should be considered if possible.
