Winter storm heads this way

Areas of northeast Indiana and northwest Ohio could see heavy snow starting Sunday afternoon.

The National Weather Service in Northern Indiana issued a statement Friday afternoon, indicating the following counties are likely to have snow through Monday morning:

  • Indiana – Adams, Allen, Huntington, Kosciusko, Whitley, Wabash, Wells, Pulaski, Fulton, White, Cass, Miami, Grant, Blackford and Jay.
  • Ohio – Defiance, Henry, Paulding, Putnam, Van Wert and Allen.
The winter storm is forecast to bring several inches of snow, with the potential for 4 to 6 inches along and south of a line from Peru, Ind., to Ottawa, Ohio. That line is just south of Fort Wayne.

It is too soon to predict which areas, specifically, will get the most snow, the weather service said. It advised those planning to travel late Sunday through Monday to pay attention to weather updates.
