It’s a slick start to Friday morning thanks to icy roads in the wake of the snow that fell on Thursday evening. 95.3 MNC has received reports of slippery areas of State Road 23 in Mishawaka and Granger, as well as the U.S. 20 Bypass in St. Joseph and Elkhart Counties. In southwest Michigan, traffic along U.S. 12 in the Union area, along with M-217 and M-40 are reported to be slick.

Traffic in the area of Elm Road and Kern Road was hampered by a spinout. Traffic is also reported to be slow on U.S. 33 from Goshen’s south side, through Ligonier and south toward Kimmell. You’re advised to allow extra travel time, extra braking distance and driving at a slower speed in the icy stretches of road.

Scattered snow showers are possible on Friday, especially by the afternoon hours. The impact will be pretty minimal for most of Michiana, however. Once this minor round of snow passes, the lake-effect snow machine turns on, mainly for Berrien County. Some portions of Berrien County could see more than six inches of snow by the time Sunday rolls around. Closer to South Bend, the amounts look to be around an inch. Otherwise, temperatures will be in the 20s and skies will be cloudy with a few snow showers possible this weekend.

Models continue to zero in on the middle/end of next week for our next chance of substantial snow (system + lake effect), but it’s still too early to pin down exact totals.
