ELKHART — The first snow storm of the year in the Elkhart County area could come as early as Thursday night, according to the National Weather Service.

The National Weather Service in northern Indiana issued a winter storm warning Wednesday afternoon that will take effect at 4 p.m. Thursday.

The day may start with some rain, as the weather service forecasts showers and possibly a thunderstorm, before the snow arrives in the evening.

The weather service’s warning will be in effect until 7 p.m. Friday, with as much as 5 inches of accumulated snowfall and winds gusting as high as 50 mph during that time.

Those conditions are expected to lead to a significant decrease in visibility.
