SOUTH BEND, Ind. (AP) — Lake effect snow showers rolling off Lake Michigan are bringing moderate to heavy snowfall to parts of far northern Indiana.

A lake effect snow advisory remained in effect until noon Monday for LaPorte, St. Joseph and Elkhart counties. The National Weather Service predicts that between 3 and 6 inches of snow will fall in that area before the precipitation diminishes later in the day ahead of a cold front.

The lake effect snow was forecast to bring an inch or more of accumulation to areas of north-central and northeastern Indiana before the snow trails off.

Temperatures are forecast to fall to about 10 degrees in northern Indiana on Monday night behind the cold front, into the teens over central Indiana and into the lower 20s in far southern Indiana.
