Indiana braces for up to 8 inches of snow


Indiana authorities were bracing for a winter storm forecast to dump up to 8 inches of snow on the state.  Most of our area can expect closer to 4-6 inches by the time it all wraps up early Wednesday morning.

Officials at Indiana Dunes State Park on Lake Michigan estimated 2 inches of snow fell there by 3:45 p.m. EST Tuesday. Snow was sticking to pavement in South Bend about the same time.

Schools in northwestern Indiana began dismissing students before noon. The Indiana State Board of Education was among government entities canceling meetings scheduled for Wednesday.

The National Weather Service predicted as much as 8 inches of snow would fall on Lake County, up to 7 inches in Fort Wayne, 6 inches in Muncie, 5 inches in Lafayette and lesser amounts further south.

More than a dozen flight arrivals or departures were canceled Tuesday at Indianapolis International Airport.

By late Tuesday afternoon, FOX28 News was already receiving reports of accidents.  One involved a school bus, but none of the children on board were injured.  Stay with and FOX28 News for updates throughout the night.
