...Bursts of Moderate to Heavy Snow Showers Today...
Scattered to numerous snow showers will continue at least through
mid afternoon. Webcams and radar indicate bursts of heavy snow
are occurring under the strongest showers, reducing visibilities
to a half mile or less. While the main thoroughfares may remain
just wet much of the time outside of snow showers, a quick
coating of snow is likely on roads under the heavier bursts of
snow. Use caution if traveling and be prepared for sharp changes
in visibility and patchy slick spots.

one half mile or less with the more intense snow showers. A light
coating of snow is possible on roads that may lead to some

showers expected to develop across northern Indiana this
afternoon, and these snow showers will also be capable of brief

...Snow showers may cause scattered slick spots this afternoon
and tonight....
Snow showers are expected to develop across the region this
afternoon and persist into the overnight hours. Accumulations will
be spotty and generally a half an inch or less.
Ground and air temperatures are forecast to be primarily above
freezing during the daytime hours. However, a few of the showers
this afternoon may be strong enough to produce very isolated
bursts of moderate to even heavy snow. If the heavier snow showers
develop, road surfaces could briefly be coated with snow and
become slick. In addition, visibilities could be reduced to well
under a mile within the heavier snow showers.
Friday night, as temperatures cool to near freezing, a few slick
spots may develop, mainly on bridges and overpasses.
Drivers who encounter one of the snow showers this afternoon
should slow down and leave plenty of room between them and the
vehicle in front of them. Drivers tonight should be especially
cautious on bridges and overpasses.
