Gearing up for winter storm
Decatur and Adams County, along with northern Indiana, are under a winter storm warning. At 1 p.m Thursday, the National Weather Service updated its warning with the following information:
A wintery mix of sleet and snow is expected to begin about 7 p.m. Thursday.
As the storm continues, freezing rain and sleet are expected south of a line that roughly falls through Bluffton and Decatur in Indiana and Van Wert in Ohio.
Ice up to one-tenth or one-quarter of an inch is possible south of a line that roughly along the route of U.S. 24.
The heaviest snow accumulations are expected in a swath south of line that runs between LaPorte, Ind., to Three Rivers, Mich., which is likely to include South Bend. Snow of 3 to 5 inches is expected on either side of this area.
The weather service said the exact path of the storm remains questionable, but that travel will likely become difficult tonight and Friday. The warning remains in effect until 10 a.m. Friday.
