Lows to start your Monday, Jan. 25, will be in the mid 20s. Highs by the afternoon will be in the low to mid 30s.

A Winter Weather Advisory goes into effect as mixed wintry precipitation and snow showers look to move into Michiana around 5 p.m. – 6 p.m. Snow will remain light at first with a gradual increase into the evening hours.

Moderate to heavy snowfall will stick through the overnight hours into Tuesday morning.

During the late morning, Tuesday, we will start to see a downward trend in overall snow intensity. Light snow showers and flurries will remain with us on the back side of the system through 4 p.m. – 5 p.m. on Tuesday. Snow accumulation will range from 3-6 inches in central LaPorte, southern St. Joseph, southern Elkhart, and LaGrange counties northward into Berrien, Cass, and St. Joseph Michigan counties.

Along  U.S. 30 and south, 1-3 inches of snow accumulation is possible.

Southern Pulaski and southern Fulton counties could also see up to 0.1” of ice. Slick spots and reduced visibility is likely, especially later in the evening Monday through Tuesday morning.

After the snow moves out cold temperatures will be left behind with lows Thursday and Friday morning in the teens and highs in the 20s. Next weekend another round of wintry mix and snow looks possible.
