Bursts of snow could makes roads slick, reduce visibility

Snow falls as a tow truck driver prepares to remove a car after a crash Tuesday morning on U.S. 30 and Whitcomb Street in Merrillville.

A band of moderate to briefly heavy snow was expected to move through Northwest Indiana late Tuesday morning, leading to slick roads in some areas. 

The snow could reduce visibility to a half mile and result in a half inch of accumulation, particularly in grassy areas, according to the National Weather Service.

More snow, possibly mixed with rain, could affect the afternoon commute, forecasters said. The precipitation was expected to turn to all snow after 7 p.m.

High temperatures could rise into the low 40s. Lows late Tuesday into Wednesday could drop into the mid-20s.

Snow flurries are possible before noon Wednesday, but the rest of the week is expected to be dry, the weather service said.
