  • 8 inches of overnight rain floods east-central Indiana
    Heavy rains that dumped more than half a foot of rain overnight triggered widespread flooding Friday in some central and northern Indiana counties.
  • 4- to 6-inch rains reported in area
    Heavy rains of 4 to more than 6 inches were reported in parts of northeast Indiana through Friday morning, the National Weather Service said.
  • Flood warning: Huntington, Wabash, Wells
    The National Weather Service has issued a flood warning for parts of Huntington, Wabash and Wells counties until 11:45 a.m. Saturday, mainly in southern areas near the Salamonie and Mississinewa rivers.

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.
