At last, the weather system we've been tracking for the past several days has finally arrived! As a result, a Winter Weather Advisory is in effect for Grant, Blackford, and Jay counties until 7AM on Monday.
Snow will begin to overspread the region by late this evening.
Snow will continue to fall overnight, before wrapping up by early Monday morning. The most difficult period of travel will likely be Sunday night, but a few school delays and slick roads are certainly possible Monday morning.
We then get a break from the snow, with overcast conditions for most of the day on Monday. This will give crews some time to clear the roadways, making travel easier. However, by Monday evening, round two of the snow arrives. It looks like most of the snow will stay south of the viewing area, but locations south of Fort Wayne can expect to see at least another dusting of snow. Those in Grant, Blackford, and Jay counties could pick up another inch of snow in some locations.
This band of snow will be much briefer, and skies will turn mostly sunny by the late morning on Tuesday.
By Tuesday morning, we expect around a trace to an inch of snow in Fort Wayne and to the north, while locations south of Allen county could pick up 1-3" of snow.
After this system moves through, temperatures will drastically cool midweek, with highs in the 20's! However, it looks like warmer conditions will begin to arrive toward the end of next week, with highs near 40° possible by next weekend.
