Winter Weather Advisory
Like an unwanted guest overstaying their welcome, winter showed no sign of leaving Sunday morning with Northwest Indiana residents digging out from 6 inches or more of fresh snow.
A steady stream of snow fell across Northwest Indiana again Monday, causing white-out conditions on roads and adding inches to be shoveled from driveways.
Anywhere from 3 to 8 inches of snow is expected in various parts of the region by Wednesday afternoon with wind chills as low as 25 below zero to follow on Thursday and Friday.
The region is bracing for another round of severe winter weather with several inches of snow possible tonight into Sunday, followed by another icy cold snap early next week.
Forecasters are warning as much as 6 inches of snow could fall across the region by Saturday afternoon.
Several school districts in Northwest Indiana issued a two-hour delay for Thursday morning in anticipation of wind chills that are expected to dip below zero.
A winter storm was expected to continue to bring snow into the Chicago area until Wednesday morning.
The region's first snowfall of the season is expected to dial down by the end of Friday, bringing lower temperatures, forceful winds and a chance of more snow Saturday, forecasters predict.
Up to 5 inches of snow were expected by this morning in the Chicago area and Northwest Indiana, with 6 inches or more forecast for areas to the south.
High winds forecast for Sunday will whip snow and bitterly cold air through the Calumet Region, putting Northwest Indiana under a winter storm warning and a lakeshore flood warning.
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.
