Autumn is almost over, but winter is coming and its bringing the first major snow of the season to Michiana Monday night, Nov 11.

The National Weather Service (NWS) issued a lake effect snow watch for St. Joseph, Starke, LaPorte and Porter counties in northern Indiana going into effect Monday night.

An arctic cold front is expected to move across the warm Lake Michigan Monday afternoon. The NWS says that the lake effect snow will mostly affect western St. Joseph County and most of Starke and LaPorte counties.

The band could bring northwest winds of 10 to 20 mph and one to two inches of snow per hour, with totals between three and seven inches or possibly more. The wind may cause some blowing and drifting and roads may become slippery and hazardous.

The NWS adds that visibilities could be reduced to close to zero. These bands of snow are often narrow, but drivers on highways such as the Indiana Toll Road may experience quick reductions in both visibility and driving conditions.

Additional warnings or advisories may be issued Monday as the cold front moves closer to the area.
