Lake effect snow is expected to develop this evening and intensify late tonight into early Wednesday morning. Accumulations of 4 to 8 inches are possible within the heaviest bands, with snowfall rates of 1 to 2 inches per hour possible. Northwest winds of 15 to 25 miles per hour will lead to areas of blowing and drifting. Holiday travelers should anticipate hazardous winter driving conditions across portions of U.S. 30 and the Indiana Toll Road on Wednesday. Remember, a lake effect snow watch means there’s a potential for a large amount of snow to develop in only a few hours. Plan accordingly and allow ample travel time to reach your destination.
