Lake effect bumps up Fort Wayne snow total to 3.2″

FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WPTA21) – After a full day of snowfall and dropping temperatures Monday, our team of meteorologists is getting updated snow totals Tuesday morning.

Overnight, we added another third of an inch of snow in Fort Wayne, bringing up the snow total to 3.2 inches.

This addition can be attributed to lake effect.

Snow totals were heaviest in northern Indiana and the western half of our viewing area, like Angola who saw 5 inches.

Several schools in northeast Indiana delayed and canceled classes. Check our closings list here. 

RELATED: Potentially record-breaking cold

Today will be cold and potentially record-breaking with highs expected to remain in the mid-20s, short of our record-breaking coldest high temperature of 28.

During the day, it will remain cloudy and breezy with a stray snow shower possible.

The breezy weather should begin to calm this evening with clouds departing overnight.

Our team of meteorologists will have the latest on the forecast at noon.
