Strong Storm System Brings Wind, Rain, and Snow To NW Indiana

Our strong spring storm system continues to move through the Great Lakes and is bringing strong winds and periods of rain to the area. We’ve even seen areas of heavy wet snow develop–mainly in Michigan as this dynamic storm moves northeast!

Locally, we haven’t seen much snow mix in–but we could still continue to see pockets of heavy, wet snow mix in with the rain showers as temps remain supportive of some larger snowflakes with the raindrops.

Morning Temps Aren't Spring-like At All

As far as rainfall is concerned, the highest totals from here will be in our eastern counties with showers coming to an end in Lake and Newton counties:

Rainfall will continue to wind down today as the storm system moves away from NWI

 

Most of the accumulating snow will thankfully be confined to Michigan:

The HRRR (computer model) isn’t sold on a widespread wet snowfall either, but portions of NWI may see some big flakes mixing in this morning:

Winds continue to be quite strong with gusts over 40mph at times! As a result, a High Wind Warning and Wind Advisories are in place for all of NWI. The strongest winds will be felt along the lakeshore:

As a result of these strong winds–especially near the lakeshore–waves continue to batter the shoreline! Take a look:

Much warmer air and SUNSHINE will return as we head into your NW Indiana weekend! Take a look at the latest Regioncast:
