Wednesday morning brings bitter cold conditions with lake effect snow coming down in some parts of Michiana.

The wind chill is making it feel like it is in the single digits.

1-3” of snow is possible in our Michigan counties and northern Indiana counties while areas to the south will see less than an inch.

Roads are slick with areas of low visibility in lake effect bands. Listeners reported tricky travel in eastern St. Joseph County and Elkhart County and in Cass County in Michigan.

In Elkhart County, slick conditions were reported along SR 19 near Simonton Lake, along SR 15 in Bristol and along the US 20 bypass between US 33 and CR 17. A semi-involved crash blocked traffic at CR 35 and US 20 in Middlebury.

Lake effect snow continues into Thursday morning, otherwise clouds will start to break up the remainder of the day. It stays cold through the weekend with another chance of snow on Saturday.

Wedneaday: Lake effect snow, breezy. High of 26, single digit wind chill.

Wednesday night: Lake effect snow, breezy. Low of 17.

Thursday: Morning snow showers, mostly to partly cloudy. High of 28.

Friday: Partly to mostly cloudy. High of 32.
