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.

Civil rights attorneys said they hope to exonerate the former chairman of a bribery conviction by obtaining unreleased emails from a federal judge reprimanded for sending racist correspondence. Former Montana U.S. District Judge Richard Cebull sentenced Birdinground (“bird-in-ground”) to three years in prison in 2003. The 79-year-old Crow leader had pleaded guilty to taking kickbacks from a car dealership. When Birdinground sought to retract his plea and go to trial, Cebull rejected the request, a decision upheld on appeal. Cebull resigned last year after an investigation into a racist email he sent involving President Barack Obama. (AP Photo/Billings Gazette, Larry Mayer)
