DEEP, DRIFTING SNOW: National Weather Service says up to 7 inches possible for Whitley Tuesday-Wednesday

NORTH WEBSTER – A storm system reaching the west coast of the United States this morning will reach the southern Plains on Tuesday and then strengthen as it tracks into the Ohio River Valley Tuesday night into Wednesday. While there is still uncertainty regarding the exact track and strength of this storm, there is a likelihood of accumulating snow across much of northern Indiana, southern lower Michigan, and northwest Ohio late Tuesday night into Wednesday. A Winter Storm Watch is in effect late Tuesday night into Wednesday for portions of north central and northeast Indiana, south central lower Michigan, and northwest Ohio where storm total snowfall accumulations of 4 to 7 inches are possible. In addition to the snow, north winds will become quite gusty on Wednesday with gusts as high as 25 to 35 mph resulting in the possibility of blowing and drifting snow.
