NORTH WEBSTER, Ind. — Northern portions of the state saw as many as 14-inches of snow on Wednesday with the first wave of a massive winter storm that moved through.

A second wave moving through today will dump even more snow, up to around nine more inches. Todd Holston with the National Weather Service office in Northern Indiana says today you can expect worse conditions.

“The thing that was kind of missing yesterday were the winds,” he said. “We are going to have a lot more wind today, on the order of gusts around 15 to 20 mph out of the northeast.”

Holston said the winds coupled with lighter a fluffier snow will make it easier for the snow to blow around once it has fallen, making it more difficult to keep roads clear. The snow will be coming down hard.

“There looks like there’s an area now with snow rates approaching 3/4-inch per hour, maybe even an inch per hour down towards Peru,” Holston added.

He says by sunset the storm will start to make its way out of Indiana. In all, northern Indiana will have seen upwards of a foot and a half of snow when all is said and done.
