Saturday morning flurries were the start of an expected 1 to 2 inches of fresh snow as temperatures began to climb.

Saturday's high temperatures are expected to be near 20 degrees, with diminished winds and 1 to 2 inches of new snow by nightfall. Saturday's predicted low is 14 degrees.

Indiana State Police for the Lowell district and the Indiana Toll Road said road conditions Saturday will be fair to good, with the continued threat of black ice and patched of packed-snow which can cause wrecks.

Below-zero wind chills are expected by the early morning hours Monday, forecasters said.

According to the National Weather Service, Chicago reports 59.6 inches of recorded snow so far this season, more than six times last year's 9.2 inches and nearly three times normal. For any snow seasons through Feb. 5, this winter is now in third place behind only 1978-79 and 1977-78.
