Our afternoon temperatures in the 50s have gotten all of us in the mood for spring – but, don’t go putting all your winter gear away. You’re going to need it in less than 48 hours.
More clouds head our way on Tuesday, but temps will be in good shape. We’ll start the day near freezing, with some patches of fog around, and end up just over 50° in the afternoon.
Late Tuesday night, our next weather system arrives, winds pick up and become gusty, and rain starts to fall. By the Wednesday morning commute, the rain will change over to snow. It’s likely going to be a messy morning commute then. Snow will fall steadily, and heavily at times, through the morning before tapering down in intensity during the afternoon.
Snow totals will range from 2″-8″, with the heaviest snow falling in areas north of Fort Wayne with lesser, but still significant, amounts southward. A Winter Storm Watch has already been issued for Wednesday as a result of this incoming snow.
Tonight: Partly cloudy. Some patches of fog develop by morning.
