WARSAW — Snow showers are expected to continue past midnight Monday and into Tuesday as much of northern Indiana gets its first seasonal blast of snow.
Mid-afternoon snowfall Monday, Nov. 11, appeared to be on its way to meeting the predicted two to four inches of snow expected in Kosciusko County, the National Weather Service said.
Police dispatchers were directing first responders to numerous afternoon traffic accidents, many of which were slide-offs.
An additional inch of snow is expected tonight. Winds will be gusty and up to 20 mph.
There is a 50 percent chance of snow Tuesday until about 4 p.m., the weather service said.
Tuesday’s high will be 24. The low will be about 9.
As of 4 p.m., Warsaw had about two inches of snow. Areas north of Kosciusko County were seeing higher accumulations. Osceola, midway between Elkhart and South Bend, had five inches of snow.
South Bend and southwest Michigan are expected to get as much as six to eight inches, some of which is lake effect, according to the weather service.
