(Tom Coomes/ABC 57 Meteorologist) Heavy snow, with a rate of one-inch-per-hour or higher will begin around 6 p.m. and last through midnight.

Most areas of Michiana will get around six inches of snow, with higher amounts likely south and east of South Bend.

With a Winter Storm Warning in effect for the entire listening area, travel is not advised and will continue to be difficult Tuesday morning, even with snow ending before the morning rush. Blowing and drifting make keep some open roads more difficult.

The bitter cold continues Tuesday, and we could make another attempt at an elusive subzero low early Wednesday morning. The pattern stays active this week, another round of snow is likely Thursday into Friday. The deep freeze comes to an end this weekend with a warm-up just above freezing. That could cause a sloppy Sunday with wet snow / wintry mix.
