The National Weather Service of Northern Indiana has issued a Winter Weather Advisory for the listening area until 1 p.m. on Saturday, Jan. 18.

On Friday, Jan. 17, the daytime will be snow-free.

On Friday evening, a storm begins with a burst of wet heavy snow. The snow transitions to sleet and rain after midnight.

There is the potential for more than three inches of snow by early Saturday. Sleet and rain will compress that snow to slush and the cold ground will freeze that slush into an icy mess.

Temperatures warm above freezing on Saturday, but slick conditions remain concerning through mid-morning.

Temperatures tank again in Sunday and Michiana will be under the threat of lake-effect snow.
