Roads wet but mostly clear as snow continues to fall

Despite the snow, traffic on Interstate 80/94 moves along early Friday near the Indianapolis Boulevard exit.

The first snowfall of the season left most Northwest Indiana roads wet but not particularly slick ahead of the Friday morning rush.

Periods of slight to occasionally moderate snow were expected to continue through the morning before tapering off by midday, according to the National Weather Service.

Though roads were mostly wet, forecasters warned drivers to beware of isolated slick spots on elevated surfaces and less-traveled roads.

Snow showers could diminish visibility, so drivers should allow extra time for travel, forecasters said.

Strong west-northwest winds were expected to develop later Friday. Gusts of up to 35 to 40 mph are possible, the weather service said.

A chance of snow could persist through Saturday morning in LaPorte County.

Low temperatures could fall into the low 20s and teens overnight, with a high of just 32 degrees expected Saturday.
