Rising temps could bust Tuesday storm

A wintery mix of snow, sleet and freezing rain are expected to sweep from south to north across northern Indiana and northwest Ohio on Tuesday, but the National Weather Service in northern Indiana said Monday afternoon the region might see it all melt Tuesday afternoon.

Earlier today, the weather service said there could be 3 to 7 inches snow west of Interstate 69 and ice along and east of I-69.

Monday afternoon’s revised forecast indicated that much of northern Indiana and northwest Ohio might still see the wintery mix, but that it now appears surface temperatures will rise slightly above freezing Tuesday afternoon.

A winter weather advisory has been issued that said snow, sleet and freezing rain might fall from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. Tuesday in some areas of northeast Indiana and northwest Ohio.

The far southwest corner of Michigan is expected to get 3 to 6 inches of snow by Wednesday morning.
