Driving across northern Indiana could become difficult for Thanksgiving Day travelers with up to a foot of lake-effect snow possible in areas near Lake Michigan.

The National Weather Service has issued a heavy snow warning for northern Indiana's LaPorte County, saying 6 to 12 inches of snow could fall by Wednesday night. The forecast calls for snowfalls of 1-2 inches an hour possible late Tuesday and during Wednesday, with winds up to 25 mph.

The weather service says 4-8 inches of snow could fall in surrounding areas, including the cities of South Bend, Valparaiso, Plymouth and Rochester. It is warning drivers to watch for hazardous conditions on the Indiana Toll Road, Interstate 94 and U.S. 30.
