Special Weather Statement
Special Weather Statement issued December 30 at 10:15PM EST by NWS Chicago
...Snow and Wind To Impact Travel through Early Tuesday...
An area of light to moderate snowfall will move back across the
region through the rest of the evening. A period of steadier and
locally heavier snowfall looks to occur between roughly 1 and 5
AM. Accumulations of one to two inches are expected along and
north of a Mendota IL to Medaryville IN line. Localized amounts up
to three inches are possible near the Wisconsin state line.
Strong westerly winds will gust to 30 to 40 mph through the night,
with the potential for sporadic gusts to 45 mph which may result
in patchy blowing snow in open areas. Expect any untreated roads
to become snow or slush covered due to the snow tonight into
Tuesday morning.
Motorists are advised to check road conditions and leave extra
travel time early Tuesday morning. Prepare for some travel
impacts to the Tuesday morning commute. When driving on snow or
slush covered roads, reduce speed and increase following distance
between other vehicles.

...Snow and Wind Could Impact Travel through Early Tuesday...
Scattered snow showers will affect the area through early evening.
The main impact from these will be reduced visibility, possibly
down under one mile at times under the heaviest snow showers. A
dusting to a couple tenths of inch of snow may be possible on any
untreated road surfaces, which may cause patchy slick spots.
Later this evening through early Tuesday morning, an area of snow
will gradually drift southward across the region. Accumulations of
up to one to two inches are expected along and north of a Mendota
IL to Medaryville IN line. Localized amounts up to three inches
are possible near the Wisconsin state line. Strong westerly winds
will gust to 30 to 40 mph through the night, with the potential
for sporadic 40 to 45 mph gusts this evening. The strong winds
could eventually cause patchy blowing snow in open areas. Expect
any untreated roads to become snow or slush covered due to the
snow tonight into Tuesday morning.
Motorists are advised to check road conditions and leave extra
travel time. Prepare for some travel impacts to the Tuesday
morning commute. When driving on snow or slush covered roads,

...Patchy Dense Fog This Morning...
Patchy dense fog will be possible this morning with visibilities
dropping to one quarter of a mile or less in spots. Motorists
should be prepared for rapid changes in visibilities across short
distances. The combination of the patchy dense fog and
temperatures dropping below freezing across most locations may
create a few slick spots this morning, particularly on less
traveled roads and on bridges and overpasses. The patchy dense fog
will likely persist through 10 AM EST before diminishing.

Special Weather Statement issued December 24 at 12:40AM EST by NWS NorthernIndiana
...Patchy Dense Fog This Morning...
Areas of fog will continue to develop the rest of the night. The
fog will become locally dense in spots and may become freezing fog
causing slippery spots on roadways as temperatures fall farther
below freezing. The fog will be slow to lift later this morning,
with low visibilities possible past 9 AM EST. If you are
traveling this morning, slow down and allow extra time to reach
your destination. Watch out for slippery spots, especially on less
traveled roads.

Special Weather Statement issued December 16 at 1:04AM EST by NWS Chicago
...Slippery Travel Conditions through Early Monday...
Additional snowfall through the pre-dawn hours of Monday will be
light and only a coating to less than one inch. However, many
untreated roads will likely be at least partially snow or slush
covered due to the snow that has occurred and the minor additional
snowfall still in progress as of the midnight hour. For those who
will be out driving, leave extra time to reach your destination.
When driving on snow or slush covered roads, reduce speed and
increase the following distance between your vehicle and other
vehicles.

through this evening and continue through much of the overnight.
The snow will then taper off before daybreak Monday. Accumulations
of up to 1 to 3 inches are expected, highest south of I-80. With
temperatures well below freezing, the snow will easily stick to
untreated road surfaces and cause slick travel conditions.
Motorists are advised to drive slowly and increase following
distance between their vehicle and other vehicles when driving on
snow or slush covered roads.

Special Weather Statement

...Dusting of Snow on Some Roads this Morning...
A quick moving area of snow will bring light to briefly moderate
snow to much of northwest Indiana through 10 to 11 a.m. The light
and fluffy snow will accumulate to over one half inch in some
areas. Given the cold temperatures, this will result in a dusting
of snow on untreated roads.
Allow some extra time for this morning`s commute and remember that
even just slightly snow covered roads in cold temperatures are
slick.
