ELKHART — Four to 6 inches of snow is possible in Elkhart on Monday night, Feb. 17, with the brunt of the impact expected to arrive between 3 and 8 p.m., according to the National Weather Service.
On the bright side, though, as soon as Monday’s storm clears out, a significant warmup and melt down will ensure.
Monday’s weather could be challenging for motorists, though.
Snowfall could be heavy at times and the weather service predicts snow-covered roads will make for a difficult evening commute.
Visibilities will be diminished at times and the region could see blowing and drifting snow as well, the weather service said.
A winter weather advisory went into effect for 12 hours beginning at 11 a.m. Monday for much of northern Indiana, including Elkhart County.
Winds on Monday night will be 10 to 15 mph, with gusts of up to 20 mph, the weather service said.

Wednesday’s high will be around 37 and a chance of rain arrives later in the day.
