Lake-effect snow in much of Northwest Indiana tapered off late Wednesday morning, leaving behind varied snow totals after three days of storms.

Scattered snow showers continued in parts of LaPorte County, but a winter weather advisory there expired at 10 a.m.

Lake County was sparred from the latest round of lake-effect snow Tuesday night into Wednesday morning, and most roads were clear. Porter County said 33 highway trucks were working Wednesday morning to clear all roads.

Snow totals from 7 a.m. Monday to 7 a.m. Wednesday in Lake County ranged from 1 to 2 inches across southern Lake County to 8 to 12 inches in the county's northwest corner, according to the National Weather Service.

Snowfall totals for individual communities ranged from less than an inch to nearly 5.5 inches in Dyer and approximately 10 inches in Munster. No weather spotters in Hammond, East Chicago or Whiting — areas hit hardest by Tuesday morning's lake-effect snow — reported totals, said Amy Seeley, a meteorologist at the National Weather Service's Romeoville office.

In Porter County, snow totals from Monday morning to Wednesday ranged from 1 to 2 inches in the Porter County's southwest corner to 5 to 6 inches to the north and along the Porter/LaPorte County line, according to the National Weather Service.

New snow accumulation of 2 to 4 inches Wednesday was possible in LaPorte County, which could push totals for the past three days to between 5 and 12 inches, the weather service said.

Police reported few problems on interstates Wednesday morning.

Low temperatures in the teens were expected Wednesday night. Thursday is expected to be sunny with highs in the upper 30s, according to the weather service.

Forecasters predict a chance of rain or snow late Thursday and then rain Friday, as temperatures rise to highs in the 40s during the weekend.
