SOUTH BEND, Ind. (AP) — A winter storm bearing down on parts of the Midwest is expected to dump up to a foot (1/3 meter) of snow on parts of northern Indiana before it leaves the state Friday night.
The National Weather Service says snow starting Thursday evening is expected to continue most of Friday, totaling 8 to 12 inches (20 to 30 centimeters) by day's end. Forecasters say travel will be "very difficult to impossible" during the Friday morning and afternoon commutes.
Officials are urging caution during the storm. They say if people can avoid traveling during the heavy snow they should do so.
