Lake-effect snow could hamper Thanksgiving travel plans in the region, with more than 6 inches of accumulation possible in Porter County and up to a foot expected in LaPorte County.
The blizzard that began dumping snow across the region Tuesday afternoon currently ranks as the third worst in Chicago history, officials said.
Porter and LaPorte counties were blasted again with lake-effect snow Wednesday.
Road conditions continued to improve Tuesday across Northwest Indiana after three days of snow, wind and ice, but police continued to urge motorists to be cautious -- especially when traveling away from main roads.
Porter County lifted its state of emergency Monday night while high winds and lake-effect snow were expected to keep LaPorte County in emergency status until Tuesday morning.
Parts of LaPorte County could see more than 2 feet of snow today, and the county remains under a lake-effect snow warning, according to the National Weather Service.
The snow that began falling in the early morning hours caused numerous crashes, slide offs and spin outs on area roads Saturday, but police reported no major accidents.
