We’re in for another significant snowfall. The National Weather Service has issued a Lake Effect Snow Watch for late tonight through tomorrow evening. Snow accumulations in excess of 10 inches are possible within what’s described as a “narrow but intense” snow band. Heavy snow with snowfall rates of 1 to 3 inches per hour are possible. Blowing and drifting may also occur, with north winds of between 10 and 20 miles per hour. As a result, visibilities may be reduced to one-quarter mile or less, roads may become slick and snow-covered, and roads may become impassable. The WKVI Information Center will be staffed tonight to bring you the very latest on this storm, including any closings or delays or travel advisories. Check our closings and delays page frequently for updates.

WKVI News Director Mary Perren is glad to be back home in northern Indiana and on the radio. She’s a North Judson native with more than 20 years of news experience. She’s worked in print and radio news in Indianapolis, Hopkinsville, Ky., Nashville, Tenn. and most recently in Winamac before taking over as news director for Kankakee Valley Broadcasting in February of 2013. Her work has been honored by the Associated Press, StateNets News Association, Curb Foundation, Hoosier State Press Association and IBA. When she’s not sitting in the anchor chair or chasing down news, Mary enjoys shopping for antiques, attending concerts and taking long walks and rides in her vintage Saab convertible, weather permitting. She’s also a hopelessly devoted Chicago Cubs fanatic who still cringes at the mention of Steve Garvey and Josh Beckett and maintains it wasn’t Steve Bartman’s fault.
