The forecast is cloudy and quiet through Tuesday. A key factor to watch as the winter storm hits Michiana is how much temperatures rise above freezing. Mid-30s may not seem like much, but it could be warm enough that snowfall is more slushy on roads Wednesday.
The National Weather Service of Northern Indiana has issued a Winter Weather Advisory for the entire 95.3 MNC listening area for Wednesday. A Winter Storm Warning is in effect for areas southeast of the listening area.
Snow is likely to fall most of Wednesday, starting in the morning and lasting through the afternoon. Most should plan for around four inches, though there is a strong chance 5 to 8 inches of snow in the Warning zone.
The band of heaviest snow looks to be moving through Indiana further to our south, closer to Fulton and Kosciusko Counties, but a shift in this band further to the north or south would greatly impact who sees the most snow from this system. The rest of the week will remain fairly snowy and seasonable temperature-wise.
