While winter hasn’t brought about that “one storm everyone recalls,” it has certainly brought about several storms that have caused some headaches throughout the area.

The next storm system that is expected to do so will come through today and into Tuesday, bringing snow and freezing rain with it. The latest from the National Weather Service office out of North Webster shows US 6 being the biggest diving line of potential heavy snow accumulation, with areas north possibly seeing over three inches and areas south up to three inches.

Those areas south of US 6 and throughout the US 30 corridor could also see some freezing rain heading into Monday evening and early Tuesday morning, which could cause some travel issues for those heading to work and school. Winds could also gust upwards of 30 MPH.

A Winter Weather Advisory goes into effect for Kosciusko, Marshall, Whitley, Fulton and Wabash Counties at 5 PM Monday, while those in St. Joseph and Elkhart Counties will start at 1 PM.
