Winter weather hits Michiana


As promised, Michiana gets a big dose of snowy weather.

It has been causing problems for drivers across Michiana.

Even though the crews were out plowing and salting the roads it didn't seem to do much help.

On State Road 19 in Elkhart, we saw plenty of slow-moving cars, fish tails, and spinning tires all while businesses tried to clear their parking lots for the few who braved the conditions.

The National Weather Service says that about seven inches of snow fell in Fort Wayne and Muncie, while South Bend reported six inches of fresh snowfall.

Between three and five inches of snow was reported across parts of central Indiana, including the area just north of Indianapolis.

But in the Indianapolis area the snow turned to rain during Saturday morning, creating slushy conditions.

That slush was forecast to freeze overnight as lows fall into the teens across the state.
