After a much warmer than average weekend, we have a far more wintry forecast ahead of us this week.

Colder air is flowing in and we’ll see a few rounds of accumulating snow over the next couple of days.  The snow will fall in lightly accumulating bursts, producing scattered slick spots on the roads and a gradual accumulation.

Over the next 24 hours, up to around 1″ of snow will fall around Fort Wayne and southward.  Areas to the northwest could experience up to 2″.  Tuesday’s afternoon highs will only be in the low 30s.

By Wednesday, we’re even colder.  Highs will be only in the low 20s.  More scattered snow is expected, especially in the morning.  Another inch of snow is expected around Fort Wayne and southward by the end of the day with higher accumulations (1″-2″) possible to the northwest.  Wednesday’s snow is most likely from morning into the afternoon with the potential decreasing by evening.

If you’re traveling into northwest Indiana, near Lake Michigan, over the next 2 days, expect even more snow and difficult travel conditions, at times.
